Every sunrise, Dave walked past blackened trees, down the scorched road to his mailbox. The latch squeaked open only to reveal the loneliness inside. After inspection, he firmly shut the box. He shuffled his feet back to his burned out shack.…No mail today.…Time passed. His boots remembered his amble to his mailbox; his beard hid the disappointments of the empty contents. Each walk back lagged slightly slower than previous departure.
…Dave peered through the window, out to the wastes of what world was; what he had become. This was his last sortie. He trudged his path at dawn. .Dave pulled the latch without expectation.…There it was.…Inside, a glimmering dark bottle. Dave collapsed his back against the mailbox, grasping the bottle tightly, he popps off the top in a single motion. Eyes closed, his lips taste the beer. He looked up and sees a sliver of light carve through the coal sky. He was unsure if the moisture he felt on his eyes was from the rain or something else.
Since we formed in 2015, we always thought that brewing a beer that could survive the Apocalyptic would a worthwhile project. We took careful consideration of the ingredients – these would have to survive the fallout in the event tiny fists hit the big nuclear launch button! The following ingredients are all radio-resistant – meaning they should be able offset mutations from a nuclear holocaust. Also – this beer is an old ale, which means it can be cellared for those long nights spent in your underground bunker!
- Kumara – New Zealand’s own sweet potato – and one of the most radio-resistant consumables known to man!
- Coconut – A nice tropical twist, also radio-resistant.
- Kelp – Gives beer a creamy mouthful, which is used to expel radiation.
