Found on Draft at Max Burger: Relic Hounds Tooth Dark Mild

Since opening, our Max Burger locations (either in West Hartford Center or Longmeadow) have dedicated a tremendous amount of thought to beer.  Finding and selecting just the right brew to run.  Making sure the styles do not get too similar, or that we keep the fan favorites around.  One thing that this attention to detail has given us is the ability and desire to find the unique, local brews.

In West Hartford we have developed a relationship with Mark Sigman, owner of Relic Brewing in Southington, Ct.  Mark is a craft brewer in every sense of the word, essentially brewing small batches out of his garage to get started.  To date, Mark and Max Burger have joined forces regularly to bring Central Connecticut some of the unique and finely crafted brews that are the hall-mark of Relic Brewing.  The latest addition to the line-up is the Hounds Tooth Dark Mild English Ale.

An old school English style which is traditionally malty and dark but lower in alcohol. This one is 5%abv, which is on the higher end for the style. Its brewed with traditional English malts, hops and yeasts including various types of chocolate malts, and dark crystal which combine to give some burnt raisin, caramel and hints of roasty chocolate. Some fuggles hops lend some spicy earthiness.

Delicious, smooth but still a unique small batch brew, this is perfect for cold weather sipping.  Limited time only.
