Smuttlabs Kung Fu Hobo Release


Legend has it that an itinerant kung fu master travels throughout the Seacoast demonstrating his martial artistry for the masses. His body moves like a poem, the sequence of his strikes, a ballet of precise strength. While no one knows his true identity, he has been dubbed Kung Fu Hobo. His hobo-cabana is typically track-side, his bindle, carrying his spartan belongings laid down, but his dojo is everywhere. His can of beans knows only one pairing: Kölsch. We drew inspiration from this peripatetic conquerer of mind and body and brewed a beer that has deep roots in history and has traveled relentlessly, picking up inspiration wherever it could be found. In Cologne, Germany, brewers were inspired by the Altbiers of Dusseldorf, the golden pilsners of Eastern Europe as well as the pale ales of England. The yeast used in Cologne was an ale yeast but the brewers still fermented their new beer cold which resulted in a slightly fruitier character than pilsners but a crisper, drier finish than pale ale or Altbier. The resultant Kölsch is the perfect protein punch after a long day of meditation or crane kicks.

As with all Smuttlabs releases, this beer is limited and is available on a first come, first served basis. Get it while the getting's good. $9 for 4 16 oz. cans.
