Dragon With Matches
Dragon with Matches is a Smoked Scotch Ale that features prominent malty and caramel flavors and aromas. This limited release is brewed exclusively with New York-sourced ingredients, plum-smoked malts. The smoked malts give this brew unique roasty and peaty notes that complement the rich caramel flavor. The beer’s smoky flavor inspired the beer name, taken from a lyric from the Grateful Dead song “Fire on the Mountain”: There’s a dragon with matches that’s loose on the town/ Takes a whole pail of water just to cool him down.
