Commercial description:

For our 25th anniversary beer, we knew we had to brew something, big, bold, delicious and maybe just a little crazy. Headzo American Ale is just that. A truly massive amount of English malts lend flavors of caramel and biscuit to our biggest brew yet. Then, through fermentation our brewers nursed Headzo to a !8% ABV before transferring the beer to Wild Turkey Whiskey barrels that infused flavors of caramel and vanilla to this smooth, monstrous hbeer. From our smallest brews to this behemoth, thanks for drinking different for 25 years.

Drake’s Brewing Company is located at 1933 Davis St. Bldg. 177 in San Leandro, CA.
