The Friendly Bison
Full Bodied American Pale Ale.

We all have that mate...

No, not *that* mate!

The good one... with the scruffy beard.

That mate who will drop everything at a moments notice to help you move your sister's annoying boyfriend into his new house, and bring beer to share as well. Olexij built this beer to celebrate that mate.

Let's face it, Olexij is that mate most of the time!

The Friendly Bison, hairy but friendly. The Bision is a big malty American Pale Ale, he is that mate that comes over to help you move house and still brings a carton to share. He is unfiltered, but that is part of his charm. Expect some fruitiness but this beer is definitely down to earth with hops like the Sorachi Ace lending a herbal earthy note.
