Watch out, here comes the Chief.

June 26th 1876, The Little Big Horn river, Montana.

You’ve crept through the long wavering grass and got really close, one hundred paces in front is the great pale skin devil with the long golden hair, General George Armstrong Custer. You have him in your sight, the glory will be yours alone, the tribes will sing your name across the plains for a thousand years. Just as you draw back your arrow you feel a nudge and then a voice “Oi, wake up, you aving another beer or what?”

Sounds to me like you could have been drinking the Old Dairy Brewery’s latest offering Sitting Bull.

Sitting Bull Ale Wantsums

A 5.1% American Pale Ale

Brewed with Amarillo and a new American hop called X366, and the addition of Cara and Crystal malts, With notes of lychee, grapefruit and caramel. A delicious drop!
Here’s some guff about the Battle of The Little Big Horn http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Little_Bighorn 
Now I think this chappie could be my Native American Ancestor http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gall_(Native_American_leader)  (he’s got my eyebrows I’m sure of it).

    This afternoon I had a pint of Old Dairy’s Sitting Bull. It is an EXCELLENT pint, I wish it were more often a available. I was drinking in The Wilmington, Clerkenwell, a wonderful pub. Where else might I find Sitting Bull?
