December 21st is looming. Breweries have been releasing a series of brews commemorating the Mayan Apocalypse. This December, DC Brau (Washington D.C.) will begin canning On The Wings of Armaggedon Imperial IPA. A beer like that just doesn’t get tapped. It requires a “ceremony”. Like this one they did at Churchkey in D.C. Oh yeah, and there’s some Metallica too…
As the world spirals towards its last days, it’s a perfect time for The Lost Abbey to tweak their Judgement Day recipe. The original recipe is a quadrupel brewed with raisins. The label features the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. This edition features the Mayans. Dried chiles, cinnamon, and tamarind join raisins for this, the end of days.
Five thousand years ago the Mayan Calendar last turned over. Since then, Nostradamus. The Book of Revelations and random Shaman have all prognosticated that mankind would meet a fateful end. Currently, our demise is is scheduled for December 21, 2012for it has been so decreed our world is about end not in a Christian Judgement Day but rather a Mayan Apocalypse.
Funny thing is. The Mayan’s don’t actually believe in the concept of an Apocalypse. We at The Lost Abbey didn’t want to miss an opportunity to update our original judgment Day recipe to accompany us as we collide towards this impending Rapture. Like us, we’re pretty sure you can believe in dried chiles. Cinnamon and Tamarind working well together in this beer. This means, you can count on this little bottle of beer to help you survive this cultural Armageddon. Please pop the cork and enjoy this version. We’ve got you covered. See you on December 22nd wherever life may take us.
