Join Jagged Mountain Saturday May 19th at 3PM for the Second Annual Mike Sadler Memorial Beer Release!
The Story Behind This Year's Beer
Mike Sadler was a gifted Michigan State University All-American punter and Academic All-American; however, his charisma, character, and ever-present sense of humor are the part of his legacy many people most remember. Sadler’s Banana Hammock is a tribute to Mike as retold by his friends and teammates, who helped create this beer based on the fond stories they recall...like when Mike’s homebrew experiment resulted in a banana beer explosion in his closet....like how Mike ate very healthy…except for his consistent intake of powdered sugar donuts....like how Mike decided to do a photo shoot in a Speedo…and then filled a coach’s office with the salacious printouts.
Sadler's Banana Hammock is a 12% ABV Belgian Triple with bananas, oranges, and 100 pounds of mini powdered donuts. This beer is a unique take to a unique guy, so raise your glass in memory of Mike!
Hey Diddle Diddle commemorating Mike's infamous Rose Bowl fake punt play that resulting in him running the ball in for a MSU touchdown, this All-American Wheat Ale was brewed with Apricots, Blood Oranges and Rose Petals.
- Sadler's Banana Hammock and Hey Diddle Diddle go on tap at 3pm on Saturday, May 19.
- Bottle sales also begin at 3pm. Two options will be available: 1) A special package that includes one bottle of Sadler's Banana Hammock, one bottle of Hey Diddle Diddle, and a commemorative glass. (About 150 of these will be available, and will be the only way to get the glass or a bottle of the Denver-brewed Hey Diddle Diddle this year.) 2) Individual bottles of Sadler's Banana Hammock. (400 bottles of these will be available.) There will be a limit of one package and/or two bottles per person.
