Laser Pants

Belgian Strong Pale Ale

“Don’t get ‘em mixed up with your lazy pants...”

The Avett Brothers are a fun band, with fun songs. Laser Pants, although short and pointless, is one of them. So when the time came to brew a one-off Belgian Strong Pale Ale for the 2012 edition of Brewvival, why not give a nod to the Brothers? This beer has a massively sweet fruit character, driven to the fore by the candi sugar, citrusy hops, and the esters and phenols of the yeast. If this doesn’t sound fun enough, we got water guns made with the Laser Pants logo. Now THAT’s fun, short, and pointless.
