Angles & Dangles
Ask any Mare Island submariner about “Angles and Dangles,” and they’ll grin (and shudder) at the memory of those extreme, underwater maneuvers, designed to stress test a ship and its crew. We crafted this brew in honor (and at the request) of United States Submarine Veterans for their 2014 convention in San Francisco. It was so tasty we often revisit it as part of our seasonal cycles. The lightest of our beers, Angles and Dangles is best served quite cold, and in large quantities.
