About Katyusha Rocket Red Lager by Elite Brewing & Cidery

Clean and crisp lager, slight breadiness/biscuit, deceitfully red, yet tastes much lighter. Named after: The Katyusha multiple rocket launcher is a type of rocket artillery first built and fielded by the Soviet Union in WW2, delivering explosives to a target area more quickly than conventional artillery. The Katyushas of WW2, the first self-propelled artillery mass-produced by the Soviet Union, were usually mounted on ordinary trucks. This mobility gave the Katyusha another advantage: being able to deliver a large blow all at once, and then move before being located and attacked with counter-battery fire. Although this type of weapon has existed since the 15th century (Leonardo da Vinci having perfected a similar machine).
