Mighty Fenrir, son of Loki, tested the fetters that the gods had placed upon him. The first snapped with pathetic ease. With each day he grew larger and more powerful. When they returned with the second it too broke, bringing great fame to the wolf’s strength. The third binding, made from six magical dwarven ingredients, appeared as a simple ribbon.
He did not trust it, but brave Týr, who had raised and fed him, agreed to place a hand in the mouth of the great beast as an assurance. Surely this great warrior smith, would not be so foolish as to risk his own hand. Still, the fetter remained unbroken. He had been tricked.
Their intentions laid bare, furious and bound, Fenrir snapped his jaws shut, claiming Týr’s hand in reprisal. There he will lay until Ragnarӧk. When his jaws are again freed, his mouth will open wide enough to touch the sky and the earth all at once. His eyes aflame, set on his singular desire; To kill the gods who had betrayed him.
Smooth and luxurious on the tongue, Beast of Slaughter is still imbued with enough bitter teeth for a satisfying bite. Fermented with a Nordic Farmhouse yeast, this hybrid of old and new world ipa parades a plethora of fruit and citrus flavored hops with a foundational forest of pine and resin, over a base of delicate bready wheat and honeyed barley malt, hand crafted by our friends at Riverbend Malt. With just six magical ingredients, its perfect balance restrains the tempered extremes of other ipas, while still providing a beastly experience each time you return to the glass.
