Rivertown Brewing Co. in Cincinnati is releasing War, the second beer in its 2012 brewmaster’s limited release series.
The brewery describes the beer as an Irish-style smoked red ale. It's made with cherry wood smoked malt, British amber malt, two row pale ale malt and Scottish roasted barley malt. It also has spicy Bravo hops.
War, which clocks in at 6.2 percent alcohol by volume, will be released June 20. It is the second of four brews centered around the fact that the ancient Mayan calendar ends Dec. 21, 2012 and some believe that will be the end of the world and start of the Apocalypse.
"War, a fiery red entity, holds significance as being one of the Four Horsemen given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other," the brewery says."Please enjoy with close friends and family and covet this special brew until the bitter end."
