No one knows who wrote this correspondence, but clearly other brewers know of Krunkles’ fabled recipes and are hunting for clues. Luckily the bottle in question fell into the hands of Terrapin brewmaster Brian “Spike” Buckowski. The black IPA brewed from that withered scroll was named in honor of the man who we believe penned the recipe and began a quest for the brewers at Terrapin to learn all we could about that elusive lover of the IPA… Capt’n Krunkles.
