At least he was the King of the Faries. Come to think of it that doesn't quite sound right either.
Many of Northern Brewer's Clone Kits are clever plays on the well known names of commercial beers.
Does Bell's think someone might mix them up?
If that's the case, How?
The guy who buys the kit, knows he's buying a beer "like" Two Hearted Ale. When he serves it, he says, "Its like Two Hearted Ale", a compliment to Bells.
Seems that other breweries might get upset when they see this book, http://www.northernbrewer.com/brewin...zmatulski.html, but they don't.
Why aren't other breweries upset by Sierra Madre and Phat Tyre, obvious plays on commercial beers.
Bell's may be more crotchety than their image suggests.

I'm sorry to see Northern caved. They should have called Bell's bluff.
