Beer Description:
Bolita was a type of lottery popular with the working class citizens of the Ybor City district of Tampa. Bolita means, "little ball" but profits from the illegal (and often rigged) game were anything but little. In the 1920's Tampa native Charlie Wall (center label donning the dapper hat) was the undisputed kingpin of the Bolita racket. Our Bolita is a Double Northern English-style brown ale that has a complex malt forward character with notes of chocolate, toffee and hints of roasted nuts in the finish. Bolita pairs well with Baklava, Big Band Music, Cool Evenings and robust cigars.
