Your mother may not be a hamster, but Stone Brewing of Escondido, California, is declaring Your Father Smelt of Elderberries with the release of its newest Stochasticity Project beer.

You are watching: Your father smelt of elderberries

Described as an “ancient ale,” this 10.3% ABV beer was inspired by ales from medieval England using elderberries. The name, of course, is a nod to the classic “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” in which a rude Frenchman spurns King Arthur will a barrage of aromatic insults.

Stone’s website goes full Monty Python with the beer’s description:

A medieval-style ale fit for modern beer geeks Hearken, ye merry craft-ale imbibers, as we present thee an ale inspired by medieval England. This re-creation of a medieval English ale is a brew the Knights of the Round Table would have heartily enjoyed. A strong beer, it has intense bready malt character accompanied by herbal, earthy hop notes and mild smokiness. The addition of elderberries imparts subtle blueberry-like flavor, while flaked oats and pale, amber and smoked malts mirror grains used by English brewers hundreds of years ago. It’s a beer inspired by the Middle Ages, but perfect for enjoying in the 21st century.
