Monty Python’s Holy Ale

Monty Python's Holy Ale

Every New Year’s Eve I pick out some interesting beer to try out during the night’s festivities. This year, while completing a quest at BevMo, I came across Monty Python’s Holy Ale, which is “tempered over burning witches”. It is brewed by The Black Sheep Brewery located in Masham, North Yorkshire, England and was commissioned to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Monty Python. Of course, it is also a tribute to one of the greatest films of all time, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”. Legend has it that drinking this beer it may cause the French to “fart in your general direction”.
