Death Hoppy Black Ale

<p>Death seems so obvious: the end of life, no mas, kaput. But Humans stand an optimistic animal. Many traditions suggest alternate endings: Resurrection, reincarnation, rebirth, afterlife. Even the atheist view of Eternal Oblivion doesn&rsquo;t seem quite final. As usual, Jewish tradition prescribes&hellip; Food. 7 days of family, community, and bagels (beer!) called, Shiva, meaning &ldquo;7&rdquo; in Hebrew. The flip side to the 7 days of Creation with the 7th as a holy day of rest. The first meal of Shiva is &ldquo;the comfort meal.&rdquo; And the number 7 provides powerful mojo: 7 Jewish wedding blessings, 7 Liberal Arts, 7 stars of the Big Dipper, 7 colors of the rainbow, 7 seas, 007 license to kill, 7 dwarves, 7 deadly sins, Best of 7 finals in NBA, NHL, MLB, 7th Inning stretch. George Costanza yearned to name his firstborn, &ldquo;7&rdquo; as a living tribute to #7 Mickey Mantle. The 7 award however must go to the immortal George Carlin for 7 Dirty Words, inspired by another He&rsquo;brew hero Lenny Bruce. To commemorate our conversion from that &ldquo;dirty word&rdquo; in craft to our very own crib in Clifton Park, behold DEATH (of a Contract Brewer) BLACK ALE, our Shmaltz homage to new life. Home sweet home. L&rsquo;Chaim!</p>
