Path of the Wolf is the beer made to celebrate Ian's son Wolfgang's highly anticipated birth in September of 2018. It was named as such because Wolfgang means "Path of the Wolf" in German. It only seemed fitting to make a beer that was higher in alcohol, with beautiful smoked cherrywood malt and New York State maple syrup. Path is complex and smokey, with maple sweetness and fresh roasted coffee aromatics. The NYS Willamette hops from Pedersen Farms in Seneca Castle help balance all of the complementing ingredients. Some bottles were set aside for his 21st birthday in 2039. I wonder what they will taste like.......
