The beer for today is Arcadia Ales Cereal Killer Barleywine.
Just after midnight on August 9, 1969, Charles Watson, Susan Atkins, Linda Kasabian and Patricia Krenwinkel went into 10050 Cielo Drive. They were given orders by Charles Manson to "totally destroy everyone in (it), as gruesome as you can."
Inside the house that night were Wojciech Frykowski, Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring, and Abigail Folger (heir to the Folger coffee fortune).
Watson tied Tate and Sebring together by their necks with rope slung over a beam. Sebring was then shot by Watson. Watson then stabbed Sebring seven times. Frykowski was stabbed, beat on the head with a gun several times and shot twice. Folger was stabbed a total of 28 times. Tate was stabbed 16 times.
As for the beer; It's a 9% ABV, English-style Barleywine. It's made with Rahr Pilsner, Crisp Crystal and Crisp Munich malts; it uses Northern Brewer and Crystal hops.
Arcadia is out of Battle Creek Michigan.
