Drop Kick Ale in Bottles

Just to let Drop Kick fans know we weren't just kidding about bottling it some day I decided to post the finished label. It is still a couple months from hitting shelves, but it is coming soon!

Is it bottled yet???? I told my son it would be ready this weekend...He will be very disappointed if it isn't.

I am sure that if you are bottling things such as Leprechaun and Drop Kick you will soon be bottling a nice lager. Perhaps, you should be calling that one Pog Ma Hon, then you'll be have one for kicking and one for kissing.

I have not tried Drop Kick but will be the first to say that I find your Leprachaun to be your finest so far. I do prefer the stouts and lagers but this is a fine ale.

Drop Kick was designed in the tradition British style. It is most closely related to Fuller's ESB. There have even been some cask experiments with this one.

Tried this at the Missouri State Fair tonight. A mighty fine ale!! Any pointers for a homebrewer wanting to try to clone it?? Can't help but think of the Dropkick Murphy's while I drank it!! Now, if I can just figure out where to get it around my home town!!

I tried this beer the other evening and it was remarkable. Well done. I'll be sharing it with the gents in my neighborhood. Hit me up if you guys want help with your internet marketing strategy.www.focustogrow.com
Also, you designer should get some serious love, they did a great job and the copy is great also.

Picked up a six pack on a whim today. I like to support the local brews. Excellent beer. Reasonable price, nice body and nice finish. I'll definitely pick up some more.

Bought the beer based on name/label but it didn't live up to either. Not to say it's a bad beer, but there isn't a drop kick to be seen. None of the flavor is agressive at all, so I'm assuming it's due to batch variation? Bought at Friar Tucks in St. Louis on October 2nd.

Pawl,

No batch variation, the beer is exactly as intended. If you read the back of the six pack, you'll note that "the beer that kicks back" refers to the $2.00 donation that the Kansas City Soccer Foundation receives on every case sold. The beer is an ESB, so not intended to be aggressive at all. The name Drop Kick was picked by the Kansas City Wizards, who head the foundation. I can understand the confusion though. Thanks for giving it a try!
