Fiddler's Elbow is a physical malaise often found in such backwater places as Brigadoon Scotland, Thunder Gulch Kentucky and Poplar Bluff, Missouri. You know, places where fiddlin' is the usual form of musical entertainment. OK, so I'm full of BS, you got me. Fiddler music is often warm, soothing and relaxing, and it's Wychwood's intention that the beer be so as well. The wheat malt and Styrian hops do make for a good heartier summer ale, and there is a citrus background to it. Pretty easy to drink, and the name is a good conversation piece if you're full of crap like I am.
