From our Carolina Wild seasonal series: Winner Best Beer-Second Place, 2015 Taste of Hickory. On September 11, 1955, Vicki, a 6-year-old Indian Elephant, escaped from the Airport Amusement Park in Charlotte. For nine days the fugitive pachyderm roamed free. Following recapture, two years later Vicki was sold to Carowinds developer Pat Hall. Hall relocated/resold the wayward elephant to a little-known town northwest toward the Blue Ridge Mountains, a town named Granite Falls. Vicki, due to an incurable illness, died shortly thereafter in Granada Farms Zoo. In 1976 the zoo was redeveloped into a golf course. Today, Vicki rests under the Number Three fairway. With the release of our Peanut Butter Amber, GFB celebrates the free spirit in all of us. This specialty ale is reddish in color, slightly sweet with low hop bitterness. Crisp, smooth, sessionable—peanut buttery!
