Favor of the Foxes
Dark Lager with Coffee and Vanilla
Favor of the Foxes, a name borrowed from a local award-winning board game, is a powerful card that destroys and disrupts every other player’s plans. Not that we’re saying this beer is going to destroy anything—except maybe your desire to drink anything else this winter. Best paired with friends and a board game, this mildly hopped dark lager with coffee and vanilla is rich but not sweet, has a pleasant aroma, and contains enough malty backbone to balance it all out.
Chocolate, coffee, vanilla

Curious about the name? Nick explains: I’m a nerd at heart and play tabletop board games at least a couple times a week. A friend in my gaming group introduced us to a game called “Root” and we all fell in love with it and have been playing it a bunch since. It’s produced by a St. Paul-based company called Leder Games and has won a bunch of awards for outstanding design (both in terms of gameplay and art). There is a very powerful card in the game called “Favor of the Foxes” that allows the player to basically destroy everything on a space of the board, hopefully disrupting all the other players’ plans. So it’s an homage to my gaming group, an outstanding local board game, and a celebration of disrupting other players’ plans.
