The Meaning of Life LogoA Pensive Red Ale

Throughout human history, poets, philosophers, prophets, shamans, gurus, preachers, comedians, Popes, cab drivers, and hairdressers have all speculated on the same question: What is The Meaning of Life?

The Meaning of Life is complex. It is a little bit sweet, a little bit bitter. It is rich and fulfilling. It can spur lively conversation as easily as it does pensive contemplation. It's delicious. It's a beer.

217 Brew Work's Master Brewer spent years perfecting this brew. The Meaning of Life Pensive Red Ale, made from a blend of eight malts and four hops, is one of the unique beers of the world. The Meaning of Life is elegantly balanced complexity, having many subtle characters, but none overwhelming. Due to its incomparable complexity, the first sip differs from the last, as taste receptors become saturated; a new flavor comes to the fore. Like a fine wine, this ale is designed to cleanse the palate, bestowing a lovely synergy with food. A rich brick-red color, a lingering cream-colored head, and a delicate floral bouquet add to this delightful sensory experience.
