Commercial Description:  Every brewery needs a guardian. Meet ours, Christopher; the all seeing gargoyle. He’s been watching over the building for years. As the bell tolls in the darkest hour Christopher is always keeping a watchful eye. Midnite Umber Ale pours ruby brown and has notes of candied apricot, toffee and brown sugar balanced by a solid hand of southern hemisphere hops. The best of tease and temptation.
