Jolly Rodger 2016

For more than two decades, we’ve stuck to this tradition of brewing a totally new beer every year for Jolly Rodger. Our Brewmaster, John Gillooly, describes this year’s version as a Transcontinental Winter Warmer. Yea. We used a hearty concoction of specialty malts, candy sugar and an especially aromatic yeast strain to brew this big, tasty ale. Jolly Rodger 2016 warms your belly with comforting notes of caramel, baking spice and sun-dried raisins.
