Black Wolf by Hell's Basement Brewery in Alberta, Canada

About Black Wolf by Hell's Basement Brewery

Black Wolf is Hel's interpretation of a Cascadian Dark Ale. Also known as an India Black Ale, this style was born in the Cascadia region - a bioregion that was once proposed as its own country, extending from Alaska, through British Columbia, down the west coast to Oregon and northern California. The name Black Wolf is a tribute to the wolves that still roam the Cascadian valleys. It is also Hell's Basement very own offering to the wolf-dog that was sacrificed to the river serpent by a Blackfoot man in exchange for a "saamis", or medicine hat, needed to save his people from famine in their own local lore. The story of the saamis is depicted in a brick mural in Medicine Hat's City Hall.
