Just saw this beer over at BeerBews.org, and now I’m on a mission from God. I have to find this beer.
Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project just released Babayaga in bottles, which is described as woodland stout. Apparently this beer is made with smoked malts and rosemary, which I think is a very interesting partnership, and one that I wish I could have had with our Thanksgiving meal.
The other reason I have to have this beer is that I grew up with the stories of Babayaga, a witch from Eastern European folklore. There’s not a Slavic kid out there who doesn’t know about the crazy, old witch and her propensity for eating children.
Time to start calling all my Massachusetts friends to see if I can line up a bottle of this for Christmas.
