(New York, NY) – Shmaltz Brewing will introduce a surprise beer in bombers this year.
I say ‘surprise’ because Hop Manna IPA was not on the 2011 schedule at the beginning of the year.
Label copy: In the book of Exodus, the ancient Hebrews survived 400 years of bondage before the ultimate supreme court dropped the 10 deadly Plagues on the land of the taskmasters and its head dictator, the Pharaoh. Even then, only begrudgingly, did he Let My People Go. The freedom ride across, nay through the sea left a band of wandering nomads broke and suffering, no doubt with a mighty thirst and a profound hunger. Enter the Manna: a glorious gift to nourish body and soul. Manna was said to combine the tastes of everything delicious to each person, depending on the desires of the one experiencing it. And as the Good Book says, Each shall gather according to one’s need and shall enjoy a double portion to get through thy chosen day of rest. Manna fed the entire tribe, but tradition suggests the righteous received manna ground in a heavenly mill, while the wicked had to grind it below for themselves. Perhaps we’ll let the brewers decide who’s been naughty or nice…
Hear o’Tribe of Shmaltz…Behold! A celebration of the flower of the craft beer revolution! A golden opportunity to feed your inner hop head and rejoice in Hop Manna, our newest delicacy of the modern He’brew Beer family. L’Chaim!
