God Complex

This brew is a collaboration with Alex Oliver, aka "Brassneck" or "Space Cadet", from Bristol and is based on the rather clever notion that all the hops used are named after gods of some sort or other;

Azacca is the Haitian god of agriculture,

Zeus is the Greek god of the sky and thunder,

Magnum could be loosely taken to mean Magnum Opus, or "great work", which is an alchemical term for the process of working with the prima materia to create the philosopher's stone... 

We were supposed to have some Herkules but Gazza forgot to order it, and the dry-hop will be the slightly tenuously-linked Mosaic... (Roman mosaic floors, get it?).
