THRILLA 2017 KNOCKOUT: This season, we’ll be introducing 12 variations of Thrilla in Vanilla. It’s up to you to determine the champ. Each month, a new brew will get it’s round in the rink. Give it the number of knockouts you think it deserves (1 for wimpy; 12 for a champion), just remember to vote! Cast yours below.
ROUND ONE This round features our Thrilla’ in Vanilla aged for over 6 months in Carolina Bourbon barrels. Our homemade vanilla extract using whole Madagascar vanilla beans, the smooth bourbon and the oak all meld together to make this the perfect way to start the fight!
ABOUT THE ORIGINAL THRILLA: One of our oldest friends reviewed the business plan and had only two suggestions (1) include finger puppets of ourselves in the business plan and (2) rename the vanilla porter. We took both very seriously and immediately put them into action. Little did we know that brainstorming would lead us to the epic fight in Manila. We loved the name Thrilla’ in Vanilla’ and what really cemented it for us was picturing vanilla beans duking it out! Trust us, this beer is knock out!

THE STORY Abby’s amber came into creation quite simply I would say. Our BFFs daughter, Abby, was at the Lane nutshack one afternoon and was talking to Larry about beer, as she often would. When she heard about my Wilma’s Wandering EyePA she was instantly jealous and looked at Larry and stated matter of fact that she wanted a beer named after her. Now I know that this seems ordinary but you have to know that Abby was 9 years old at the time. She is no ordinary child either as she is an amazing musician, teaching herself the guitar and piano at the age of 6. She intends to celebrate her 21st birthday with a pint of Abby’s Amber Ale which is no ordinary amber. Abby has to wait but you fortunately are able to partake and she will have to live vicariously through you!

THE STORY Our good buddy, Sparky, with whom we often trek into the woods to listen to music, requested a coffee chocolate stout as payment for a solid pecan pig chopping board he made for Larry. Sparky is an amazing woodworker, among other things, and delivered the coolest pig chopping board ever made!
