Real Ale Mysterium Verum Coffissar Bottle Swap Program

To our Mysterium Verum fans: we’ve had some dedicated customers notify us of several reports of sour bottles of Coffissar (Coffissar is a barrel-aged imperial stout with coffee added – this beer should not be sour). We’d like to apologize to anyone who has consumed or purchased any Coffissar that was affected. There is no safety concern for anyone who has drunk the beer, but this is not how we intended for this to beer to be enjoyed. Quality is a core Real Ale value and our goal is to provide a consistent and reliable product for you to enjoy. For those of you who did buy Coffissar that was sour, we’d like to offer you a new bottle of beer, on us, as an apology.

Kyley will be on hand with goodies and glassware for the early birds, so don’t be late!

You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline — it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.
