Mud Puppy Brown Ale
With a limited amount produced and high demand from Guittaro's sailors across the US, we created this stealthily hidden page for sailors, friends and family tied to one of our Silent Service's greatest, SSN-665. Celebrate with honor.
It is 1969. The brand-new nuclear sub USS Guitarro is docked at Mare Island, deck hatches open. One work crew test-fills the aft ballast, while a totally separate crew fills the fore ballasts to trim the ship. The workers return from lunch just in time to see the ship sink in the Napa River, costing millions and earning the Guitarro the nickname “Mud Puppy.” Though one of the most embarrassing mistakes in the Island’s history (the shipyard even took up a collection to attempt to reimburse the government), the Mud Puppy was eventually raised, overhauled and went on to serve the fleet with distinction for 20 years.
"We named the beer Mud Puppy because we loved the story, but then all these guys who built, served on, or decommissioned the ship…they started coming to us and introducing themselves. It may have had an infamous start, but the USS Guitarro definitely served with distinction and pride. It was a special moment in MIBC history to share the first bottle with the sailors and shipwrights from the Mud Puppy itself.
