Brewery's Description:

We spend a lot of time with our pals in the cocktail world, and they are constantly putting  new flavor combinations in front of us. One of our favorites is a Scotch-based cocktail  called The Penicillin. Invented by bartender Sam Ross at Sasha Petraske’s famous NYC cocktail bar Milk & Honey, The Penicillin is an instant classic. It combines peaty Scotch, ginger-infused honey, and lemon juice. It’s an improbable blend, but it’s delicious, and it’s also the inspiration for our next Brewmaster’s Reserve beer, The Concoction. The government wouldn’t let us call the beer “Penicillin”, (or “The Tonic” for that matter) we’re afraid. But friends, between you and us, this brand new Concoction is just what the doctor ordered. Now take your Concoction and text us tomorrow. — Garrett Oliver, Brewmaster
