Beer Factoid: June 20

On this day in 1893, a New Bedford, MA court acquitted Lizzie Borden of murdering of her parents. If you don’t know about this case, it is more fascinating than the Jodi Arias trial and with a bit more mystery surrounding who dun it! Personally, I think Lizzie is innocent; however, her mystic remains over 120 years later. In fact, a Canadian home brewery group (Elastic Path Brew Club) has bottled a 6% spiced beer with the clever name of “Lizzie Borden Killer Ginger Ale”. Yes, some resources say she was in fact a redhead. So, go ahead… take a stab at it if you can find it!

Lizzie Borden took an axe

And gave her mother forty whacks.

When she saw what she had done

She gave her father forty-one.
