Holy press, Batman! We’ve been getting a lot of love from some major press outlets about our Demisemiseptcentennial Ale.
For those of you outside the Philly area, you may not be aware of how much love there is for ‘Nova around here. It’s a Philly institution — it’s been an academic powerhouse for, well…, 175 years, and one of the strongest basketball programs in the area. Philly fans are notoriously fickle — we pelted Santa with snowballs, for goodness sake! — and ‘Nova’s NCAA championship is only the second sports championship this city’s seen since their last one in ‘85.
And with a “nearly unpronounceable,” 22-letter name, the press has gone slightly bonkers over this brew.
Just wait ‘till they taste it.
In the meantime, whet your whistle with these stories.

We’re loving all the attention Demisemi has been getting — as much for us as for Ryan and Hank’s beloved alma mater. ‘Nova is all the rage these days — particularly with the basketball team rolling over nearly every opponent. We’re thrilled to be a part of it, and even more elated to have you along for the ride.
