Inspired by the mystery of the ancient Mayan “Long Count” round calendar, Stevens Point Brewery’s brewmasters have developed Point 2012 Black Ale, a dark, robust brew. Point 2012 Black Ale is available in six-packs and 12-packs of 12-ounce longneck bottles, kegs, and will now be available in 12-ounce cans. In addition to the Mayan calendar mystery, 2012 Black Ale is inspired by traditional German “schwarzbier,” or black beer, according to Ken Carlson, Steven’s Point Brewery’s director of brewing.
