Harbottle Brewing Company
Captain John Harbottle was born in England in 1779 and did a bunch of cool stuff. He sailed as part of Captain Cook’s expedition as First Mate on the Jackal to the South Pacific and did some more really cool stuff. This one time in Hawaii, he met a really beautiful woman named Papapaunaupu (no kidding, that was her real name) and he killed her mean husband. She was so happy that her mean jackwagon husband was dead. Her daddy, Kamehameha said, “You know what? You should marry that awesome guy!” So she did.
John ended up doing a bunch of even cooler stuff with his new bestie Kamehameha and even helped him become the first king of Hawaii and everyone loved him. One day, the USA overthrew the Hawaiian monarchy and the Harbottles were really angry! So they said, “Screw this!” left, and never returned to Hawaii.
Then Harbottle opened this bitchin’ brewery named after our great great great great great great grandpappy, Johnny. Now we make kick-ass beer in his name.
