As English as English can be. The secret to its success? Crystal and pale malts first and foremost, plus our Master Brewer’s blend of Challenger, Pilgrim, First Gold and Goldings hops.

Best Bitter4.6% ABV

Civil Life Brewing CompanySt. Louis, MO

Angel and The Sword seems like an odd name for a peace offering, but hear us out. Sometimes you just have to blend cultures. Toledo, Spain is an UNESCO World Heritage Site called “the city of three cultures” for the continuous coexistence of Jews, Christians, and Muslims since ancient times. They haven’t always gotten along, at times horrendously so, but they do their best. Iron sharpens iron, as their good books say. An area famed for sword production, our favorite monument remains Juan de Ával
