The Brother was the first beer we developed in our Imperial Series and is inspired by our desire to thank Brothers everywhere. Without our Brothers, we would have taken the blame for everything as children, wouldn’t have known the inside of an ambulance, and never understood the true fear a good ghost story can cause a young child. This Brother is appropriately big, intimidating, and unbalanced with unrestrained quantities of hops for a head slap of beery ferociousness. Go ahead, Hook a Brother Up...Because Brothers Matter!
