    Its a really good beer too. A very nice brown ale. Here is another one I mean to try from this website http://beerstreetjournal.com/tag/yorkshire-squares-brewing-system/ “Sam Smith is one of the few English brewers left to employ the traditional Yorkshire Squares brewing system. This system — over 200 years old, requires a lot of attention in order to ferment beer in this method properly. A Yorkshire Squares fermenting system is a square vessel that rises about 2 stories. Cooled wort ( aka liquid extracted from grains and water that will be used to ferment into BEER!) is placed in the lower chamber of this square, while the yeast filled head settles in the upper chamber. The yeast will rise to the top deck, and remains there when the beer below is drained off.
    The beer isn’t drinkable from here — it’s still harsh. The remaining yeast will be allowed to ferment into alcohol, flavoring the beer a bit more. From this stage it is casked — thus the reference on the label to these English labels called “Cask Conditioned.” In the end, it takes about 6 days from start to cask.

    Yorkshire Stingo is brewed using this historical technique. Furthermore, Stingo is aged over a year in oak casks that have been used to age th Sam Smith’s ales since the turn of the century. What you will tasting is an ale brewed in a style as old as the United States itself”

    Thought of how I feel about it if Britain won the war. Gave it an authentic Bronx cheer and a good old fashioned American finger.

    Prohibition and those government Progressives really did a number on the brewery family businesses in America. Most of it ended up in the hands of Capone. The original old style “engineered destruction” campaign.
