Bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh it is told three kings followed a star that led to a prophecy. This year we had our own epiphany – to brew a gift in collaboration with our friends at Northern Monk.
We quite literally nipped across the road, donned our brewing caps and buddied up with the wise Monks to create three beers brewed in dedication to each kingly gift. Together, the collection is a detailed triptych illustrating their journeys to Bethlehem.
Each can illustration pulls from the mythical legends behind the kings’ stories. Melchior, carrying Gold, traverses the glistening desert plains of Arabia. Caspar begins his journey in the ancient city of Tarsus carrying Frankincense through its sunlit streets. While Myrrh is sourced from the mountainous regions of East Africa by Balthasar.
