BEER HAIKU #96 Adroit Theory Love of the Damned Old Ale

We’ve known some people to describe Emerson’s now discontinued Old 95 as an Old Ale but it’s an uncommon style, especially outside the Old World. However, it is a style that brings to mind Vikings, brigands, and all manner of Conan-era skullduggery. In that sense, the Old Ale lines up pretty well with Adroit Theory’s Metalhead brand identity. Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar has now brought us a few of AT’s happy experiments within their weekly new release series, and they’re becoming an increasingly welcome semi-fixture.
