Seasonal special – Belgian Saison with a bit of a twist. Traditionally, Belgian ales with this high an alcohol content are named after the devil in various forms, so we thought it fitting to name ours after the Norse Goddess Hel. In Norse mythology the path to the underworld was known as ’Helveg’ and their gates are called ‘Helgrindr’ or ’Nágrind’ the “Corpse Gate”. The gates are guarded by the great hound Garm, Hel’s watchdog . Her name is the source of the English word ’Hell’.
