“Provision Ale” is a rough translation of the French term “bière de provision,” which was sometimes used to describe special beers that were suitable for extended storage and aging. The name “Mad Meg” refers to a peasant woman from Flemish folklore, also known as “Dulle Griet” or “Dull Gret,” who leads an army of women to pillage hell. She’s famously depicted in Pieter Brueghel the Elder’s 1562 painting by the same name. Mad Meg is a dry, unspiced, highly attenuated Provision Ale unique to the land in the Texas Hill Country. Naturally occurring wild yeasts impart a sense of place
to this unfiltered, unpasteurized, 100% naturally conditioned beer.
