What tames an old ale like Curmudgeon? The tender embrace of oak and sweet maple, that’s what. The result is Curmudgeon’s Better Half, a harmonious matrimony of our deceptively smooth old ale brewed with molasses and time spent aging in bourbon barrels that have previously held maple syrup. Because all counterparts should be sweet, rich and utterly delicious. Curmudgeon’s Better Half clocks in at 12.7% ABV and 35 IBUs.
That’s right, we’re bringing this old favorite back from retirement – last bottled in 2012, Curmudgeon’s Better Half has become one of the most highly requested beers and for good reason. It’s damn good. You all have been very vocal in petitioning for its return and it would’ve been cruel for us to hold out any longer in delivering on that.
