THE STORY:

In a time long ago, when legends were merely stories, the wild western tribesmen from ‘round here set out to liberate some of the fine womenfolk from a neighbouring tribe. Hearing of the approaching raiders, the crafty women disguised themselves in sheepskins and hid amongst their sheep.

A canny crew, the raiders got wise to the ruse and plucked the fine women from amongst their woolly flocks. To this day the descendants of those same raiders are known as “The Sheep Stealers”.

Unfiltered, all natural, bottle and keg conditioned beer.
