While shopping at Cost Plus World Market this weekend, as always happens when there, I happened upon a few things I just had to buy, including this: MONTY PYTHON’S HOLY
GRAIL ALE. This is being recommended only to those of legal drinking age in your respective country. Please drink responsibly.
It comes in in nicely designed 4 pack, with a Monty Python style design. Here’s a closer look at each side. The front lets you know The Quest is Over! And that it’s been tempered over burning witches. They were probably going to burn anyway if they float and weren’t a duck so at least something good came of it.
And as indicated on the side, there’s Great Holy Grail Merchandise for view on the bottom of the case.
If you go to the site, you’ll find some admittedly cool stuff like a Holy Grail shaped goblet, a Snooty Frenchman, Black Knight, or Rabbt t-shirt, or even the powerful Holy Hand Grenade of Antioche! (or a replica).
Update 7/21/15: when I tried to order a couple things from the Brewery site, I found out 2 things. 1) they charge a crapload for shipping and 2) I wasn’t able to get as far as entering payment info.
Which was a good thing because then I checked Amazon and found the same items (and more) and they qualifed for the free shipping through Prime.
Holy Hand Grenade plush, Black Knight mini plush, and an item not on the brewery site, this Black Knight magnet (no free 2 day shipping on that last one). Those are things I just ordered, some for a friend’s upcoming birthday, and some for me. They also had the “horse”, aka two coconut shells you can clop together, or they will after July 28. End Update.
The other part of the bottom lets you know it’s official.
The bottles have a similar design as the case. Including the seal of being official.
The beer itself is regular beer colored, and tastes pretty good (if you like beer, you’ll like this).
So Black Sheep Brewery, for your Monty Python’s Holy
Grail Ale, I salute you. Cheers!
After looking at the Cost Plus site, it turns out there’s a whole gift set of Black Knight Brown Ale that includes the Holy Grail Goblet. I have now signed up for an e-mail alert for when this becomes available to buy.
