It’s singularly hopped with Motueka and blended with a gallon of fresh lime. ABV: 5.4 IBU 28

Who is Zed, anyway?
a Bado family legend
According to Bado family lore, our great-grandfather worked in the mines in Chop, Hungary. On his days off and as he could, he would brew beer for the other miners. The containers? Steel pails. I think he should be credited for inventing the Growler and Crowler!
