A hefty amount of corn and rye gives it a dry crispness and a spicy finish. As a throwback to the style’s origin, we also added a touch of acidulated malt, which lends a subtle tartness to this complex replication of Bluegrass history.

    Bad Tom Smith was a felon and a murderer. He confessed to the killing of six men as he awaited his fate at the gallows, telling the gathering crowd that “bad whiskey and bad women have brought me where I am”. That being said, we hope to do penance for his crimes by making good beer for all the bad whiskey Bad Tom drank. This includes our flagship beer.

Low hop bitterness balances out the rich body to create a solid, impressionable American Brown.

  • Old Abe American Strong Ale

    Beer Details
    • ABV: 10%
    • IBU: 89
    • Color: Mahogany-Brown
    • Grains: Maris Otter, CaraRed, Carapils, Honey Malt
    • Yeast: California Ale
    • Hops: Galena, Cascade, Falconer's Flight

    Nothing better illustrates American pride and patriotism than the story of Old Abe, an American bald eagle captured by a member of the Chippewa Tribe and traded to a settler in the late 19th century. Named after President Abraham Lincoln, Old Abe went on to see battle in the American Civil War and was later depicted on the insignia of the US Army’s 101 Airborne Division, aka ‘Screaming Eagles’. In order to give this American icon its due, we brewed our full-bodied American strong ale with a full force of American hops – Cascade and Falconer’s Flight. Added late to the boil, this blend of hops accentuates Old Abe’s citrusy and floral taste and aroma. Although it registers at 89 IBUs, the bitterness is balanced with a heaping amount of honey malt, which gives this strong ale its ample body. One sip and you’ll be spreading your wings.

    Flavor: Sticky honey with dark fruits, citrus, grapefruit, and caramel.
    Clarity: Pours slightly cloudy and mahogany brown, with an off-white head.
    Aroma: Rich honey, citrus, and floral, with a lemony zest.

    In the hills of Appalachia, miners excavated coal from the ground while Bad Tom put six men in it.
