Bad Tom couldnt enjoy life after redemption, but with our Saison we bring a balance that Tom couldnt find. The story of Bad Tom Smith ends with redemption. Tom for the longest time could not out run the anger and meanness that was born from his youth. But he eventually found that peace as he stood on the gallows speaking his final words. After making a dire warning to not do as he had done, he asked the 5,000 who came to see him hang to hold their hands aloft, and the doomed man spoke, “That is beautiful. It looks like what I shall see in Heaven. Again I say to you, take warning from my fate and live better lives than I have lived. I die with no hard feelings toward anybody. There ain’t a soul in the world that I hate. I love everybody. Farewell, until we meet again.” The Redemption finish is dry and effervescent; a hallmark of the style. A beer that Bad Tom would have enjoyed each evening as he watched the sun go down.
