Working as a resident alien from England and growing in popularity as a Boston brew master, Alistair McCockle has hit the U.S. beer market by storm with a low calorie and highly flavorful Ale recipe he claims he invented himself.
Struggling to keep up with demand for his first label called "Cock a Doodle Ale", McCockle is teetering on production volumes that will take him out of the "Micro Brewer" business category. "At means we'll need a bigger brewery we will, in order to go head to head with that local piss water from Sam Adams."
Residents from Nottingham England however, are crying foul. Whilst McCockle had been a former bartender at Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, regulars at the pub claim the recipe is a straight "rip off" from their "Old Speckled Hen Ale", a recipe long standing at the oldest public house in the world.
"Daft, they are", says McCockle. "I might have watched someone mix the barley and hops once, but this recipe is all mine". McCockle claims that it only a coincidence that the name only slightly changed from Speckled Hen to Cock a Doodle Ale. Perhaps to taunt his former employer and home town a bit further, McCockle added, "An Old Hen can still make my Cock a Doodle anytime, mate".
