Why Drinking Mop Water Is Like Riding A Wave…
If you haven’t noticed, we’ve been on a bit of a surf kick this week, which is perfect, because if our upcoming release — the toasty, spicy, herbed brew we call Mop Water — were a sport, it would be surfing. The comparisons are endless! Okay, the comparisons are five. Read them while you wait for the beer, coming at you October 9.
The sex appeal.
Surfing conjures up images of bronzed nubiles thrusting down the glassy faces of unbroken swell – sexy. Mop Water is brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and a ton of whole-bean vanilla – also sexy.
The smooth factor.
At least, surfing is supposed to be smooth… if you’re pumping down the line like a defective jack hammer, you’re doing it wrong. The German malts used in Mop Water lend a smooth and creamy, totally rad, mouthfeel.
The commitment level.
Hesitate in surfing and you either get sucked over the falls or drilled in the impact zone. At 7.3%, Mop Water requires commitment, too. This is not a beer for the faint of heart. Or the low in tolerance.
Surfing has a way of sucking you in, so that you find yourself paddling out even on days when the ocean is an angry washing machine. Mop Water’s been responsible for a few cravings as well. And unlike most spiced brews, this is not a one-hit wonder; you can keep coming back for more every fall and winter.
Kelly Slater. Mick Fanning. Steph Gilmore. Surfing is a sport with no shortage of idols. Mop Water is the brainchild of CMBC’s co-founder, resident Mop Man, and legend in his own right, Bob Krill.
Drop in (pun intended) to our tasting room beginning this October 9, and see if you can’t come up with a few more reasons for nose diving into a pint…
