Long Live the King!

Cheers to you, Patron Saint of Beer
It's that time of year when humulus lupulus rhizomes once again begin to send their green shoots out of the earth on their ascent to hop heaven.

Celebrate Spring and  King Gambrinus, who is credited for adding hops to beer.

"My name is Gambrinus,
King of Flanders and Brabant.
I made malt out of barley
And was the first to conceive beer
So the brewers
Can proudly proclaim
That it was a King
Who invented Beer!"
