Amigo Puller

Brewery: Holdens

Holdens brew this 4.6% beer. Amigo Puller is brewed near Dudley, W. Mids. Active - 01/08/2006

First Gold Hops and Maris otter and crystal malt blend together to form a wonderful butter toffee coloured beer with a subtle malty aroma and a fruity well-balanced, long finish. Drag your mates out for a couple! The Black Country was littered with coal pits. Some were major commercial operations with pit-head wheels above shafts going deep underground; others were remnants of ancient mines - small and run on a subsistence level, while others were shallow pits excavated by men desperate to feed their starving families. In the latter two cases, the means of reaching the coal face was often by sitting on a stick tied to the end of a rope and being hauled to the surface by a particularly strong member of the team. This was literally the miners lifeline and as a result the stick was known as the amigo (or friend), and the man who hauled on the rope was, consequently, an Amigo Puller.
