Beer Story

True to style, a mild brown ale with a hint of toffee, balanced with a mild hop bite and a clean finish.

“I like to think we’ve done great things for the Warthog’s public image with this one. The fun thing about this beer is the contradiction, the wild beast it’s named after contrasting with how approachable the brew is. It’s mild, totally refreshing, and a beer I’ve been proud to brew now for over 23 years.” ~Brewmaster Paul Gautreau
