BC: Who came up with this beer’s recipe?
Tyler Swaim and Rob Revwitch.

BC: What’s your favorite aspect of this beer (flavor, aroma, etc.)?
We love the flavor and the clean finish. The toasty malty sweetness with just a hint of spiciness makes this one of our favorites to drink in the fall.

BC: Where does this beer’s name come from?
We let the style for the beer hold the name marque.

BC: Is this your “desert island beer?”
This is a very tough question. How does one pick one beer for eternity! This may not be our “desert island beer” but we would not complain if this is all that was offered.

BC: Can you describe this beer in 10 words or less?
Copper in color, toasty, malty, spicy in flavor, clean finish.

BC: Do you know a story – or have a personal story – that revolves around this beer?
Not really, just a love for this style of beer especially when the leaves start changing.

BC: What's a good food pairing for this beer?
This is one of those beers that pairs well with most foods! However how could you not want to pair it with a local bratwurst, sauerkraut, and an artisanal mustard!
