Tony Beard's label design for NABC Black & Blue Grass, as submitted to the governing authorities. We're aiming for a shipping date of April 18; keep all fingers crossed.
NABC Black & Blue Grass
Ale with blue agave nectar and spices
The great Bill Monroe described his bluegrass music as "Scottish bagpipes and ole-time fiddlin'. It’s Methodist and Holiness and Baptist. It's blues and jazz, and it has a high lonesome sound." Our Black & Blue Grass begs to concur. Belgian yeast and stateside Saison spicing; black pepper and blue agave and lemongrass, and a great bet alongside any food you have around. Or, just enjoy a bomber of Black & Blue Grass as you watch the springtime ponies run.
