From our friends at Against the Grain Brewery in Louisville, KY

Olive You from My Head Tomatoes

Experimental Mediterranean smoked amber beer. We smoked the malt with olive wood and olive pits then added Rosemary and sun-dried tomatoes. If I knew where the Mediterranean was, I'm sure drinking this beer would take me there.

As brewers, we are always looking for unique opportunities and ideas to steal from people who are actually talented and smart. The Good Bugs guys were the latest victims of the AtG co-opting/mooching strategy.
