Sixteen Springfields Double IPA

 

A proud member to our flagship lineup, the name “Sixteen Springfields” was bestowed on this IPA after some amusing local folklore. After the Battle of Olustee and the end of the Civil War in 1865, the story goes that Union troops enjoying a meal at Lake City’s Hotel Blanche stacked their weapons outside the dining room. Unreconstructed rebels gathered the guns and dumped them in Lake DeSoto a block away and beat the ever-living tar out of the soldiers upon exiting the hotel.

 

The tale took on a legendary cast, often told but not necessarily believed. Then in 1982 the lake was drained and in the mud lay 16 Springfield rifles which are now on display at the Lake City Public Library.
