Sour Willy

5.9% | 0 IBU
In the mid 1500s Stratford-Upon-Avon, England was highly renowned for its brewing. This era held high hopes for William Shakespeare’s father. John Shakespeare was chosen for a variety of civic duties, including ale-taster in 1557. Eventually his success turned sour, due to debt and legal troubles. Present day in Stratford, Ontario we’ve created a Sour Ale to ally this connection. This double dry hopped sour ale boasts vibrant notes of lemon and grapefruit while finishing dry. Accompanied with a smooth citrus resin, a quart of this ale is fit for a king.
