When the shock finally subsided from their Indies win, it became time to work out what beer they'd brew next to mark the occasion. Given the climate in late 2020, it's not like there weren't plenty of exciting, excitable options on the table: a punchy IPA, a lively sour perhaps, or their first hazy that's not a European wheat beer? Nah, let's make a 6.6 percent ABV cream ale; that's what the kids are crying out for...

As Helen Galik said to her husband when he told her his plans: "Are you drunk?"

But staying true to yourself is as good a quality as you can wish for, so Nick did just that and set about creating a pre-Prohibition American-inspired, malt-led beer. It possesses a slow-building, nougat-like, creamy biscuit malt sweetness, a hint of spicy hops, and is as soft on the palate and low in bitterness as the style demands.
