(Collaboration with Stillwater Artisanal)
A Baltimore Beer Week 2012 collaboration with our favorite gypsy, Mr. Brian Strumke, the man behind Stillwater Artisanal Ales. Hard Times is a full bodied, fruity saison brewed with a just a kiss of malt that was smoked over plum-wood by our friends at local BBQ & Biscuit pop-up, Blacksauce Kitchen. Hard Times features a touch of white pepper and smoke in the nose followed by peach, clove and hay notes on the palate.
