Old ale

Hair of the Dog Adam from the Wood (2015)

What is your favorite beer? That is a question I have been asked countless times over the years and it is not an easy question to answer. I generally give some long winded answer that doesn’t really answer the question. Most of the time at some point during that discussion I find myself bringing up one beer more often than any other, Adam from the Wood from Hair of the Dog Brewing.

In my circle of friends I am known as “The Beer Guy.” Before I earned that loving moniker I was known as “The Whisky Guy. I have a long running adoration with whisky and more precisely single malt scotch. I love whisky from every region in Scotland but for some reason one distillery in the Orkney Islands has always stood out for me. Highland Park.
