Mean Old Tom

Our American-style stout aged on organic vanilla beans.  Intense notes of coffee and dark chocolate lead way to subtle notes of natural vanilla.  Flaked oats generate a silky mouthfeel.

I think it was the summer of ’76, I was  5 years old and my uncle Tom came to paint our house. It was in the tiny town of Louisiana, Missouri, on the mighty Mississippi River, where he would take me to stroll the roadside ditches to gather one man’s junk (beer cans). In honor of his magnificent treasure (his beer can collection) and his spirit for fast cars, tough motorcycles and mean smiles, we bring you Mean Old Tom.
