Krampus - Southern Tier Brewing

Southern Tier makes beer that should be tested for performance enhancing substances.

Aromas of breaded yeast and spent fireworks.

Apple zest with spiced peaches and prickling carbonation coated in a grapefruit finish.  9%.

What's a movie to watch while consuming this beer? Santa's Slay.

Acid King - Busse Woods (1999)

2nd album from the 2nd best band with "acid" in their name.

Drowned in spaced grooves & enough cubes of syrupy hypnosis to massage your fourth eye.

Thrown back into the 70's and out the other end of the 23rd century.
