“A story of many but begins with one
Filled with secrets and mystery of all
Twelve sycamores surround the black oil
Red drapes appear as Jupiter and Saturn conjunct
An opening to a gateway between two worlds
The Dweller on the Threshold enters the Black Lodge
As above, so below; wood, fire and creamed corn.”
The Background Story
The early nineties was a very important time in the Macken Bryggeri's staff life, when our youth began to forge our personalities and our world views. At this very crucial juncture, David Lynch and Mark Frost gave birth to one of the most inspirational works in television history. This was the epic tale of Twin Peaks.
The series has a unique dramaturgy, which led us all initially to believe that this was about a small town, a murdered homecoming queen and the honest and chivalric FBI-agent sent to investigate her tragic demise. What we did not know, was that this multifaceted drama withheld deep existential issues and supernatural elements that crept upon its audience and planted seeds that would continue to grow within us, and that this plant still spreads its roots and sends tingling sensations through us when we return to its haunted woods.
The fine prints
This beer is our tribute to one of the most inspiring American cult television serial drama ever created Twin Peaks [1990-1991] by David Lynch and Mark Frost, as well as the feature film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me  by David Lynch and Robert Engels.
The label artwork depicts the core metaphysical and supernatural elements of the obscure mythos of Twin Peaks.
The visual comprises the interaction of the physical matter with the spirit realm. This is represented by the homecoming queen Laura Palmer and the FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper both gifted with the ability to interact with the dwellers of the Red Room and the Black Lodge; The Man from Another Place and Killer BOB as well as the dweller of the Red Room and the White Lodge; The Giant.
The composition of the visual is based upon the central circular shape representing the inner mystery of the spirit world; the Red Room and the Black Lodge, surrounded by the old woods of Twin Peaks. The circle is also a reference to the spotlight of The Roadhouse stage, adorned with red drapes, referring to the encounters between Dale Cooper and The Giant. The flame-like shape in the upper part of the visual, as well as the shape of the label itself, resembles a road sign – which signals order and civilization – and which imaginatively is to be found along the peaceful roads of where the city Twin Peaks is located. In the same manner as Twin Peaks and its inhabitants conceal their darkness below a calm and orderly surface, the road sign encompasses the unknown wilderness within its middle.
The colours are inspired from by mysterious, ghostly aura of the Red Room combined with the earthly, warm feeling of wood, manifested in the TV-series photography.
This American IPA is characterized by a warm copper colour and a velvety foam head like owl feathers. Its fresh pine-like hop aroma and damn fine taste are legendary even in the Black Lodge. Ask to BOB!
