3 Floyds/Dark Horse Oil of Gladness
3 Floyds! Dark Horse! The two breweries got together to make a tribute beer paying homage to the Infantry Brigade of the Union Army during the US Civil War known as the “The Iron Brigade.” These “Black Hats” consisting of Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin regiments were fierce warriors with iron dispositions without a doubt. More importantly, they were also beer drinkers and Craft Brewers and if they weren’t busy kicking some Rebel ass. If encampment was anticipated for long enough, they would often turn a batch of homebrew to take on the trail to the next battle. “Oil of Gladness” was one of the many nicknames given to the beer these brave men were brewing out on the warpath. Black Barleywine.
