It’s all bottled! 47 wonderful brown bottles of Bombadil.
Yep, I’m naming my first brew in honor of Tom Bombadil. In our world of practicality and order, Bombadil doesn’t seem to fit. And is often left out of most adaptations of the Lord of the Rings.
Evil seems to have no hold on him. Not even a little pull. (Even Gandalf feared the Ring.) But if it weren’t for him, the Fellowship would’ve finished before it even began. And if it weren’t for his gift of daggers, Merry might not have been able to wound the Witch King, allowing him to be destroyed.
So “Bombadil” is the name. His colors of blue and yellow are a serendipitous fit with my love of Sweden!
I’ll be able to uncap a bottle in a couple of weeks!
