One gave her goodness, another beauty, another riches, and so on till she had all that was good in the world. Just as eleven of them had done blessing her, a great noise was heard in the courtyard, and word was brought that the thirteenth fairy was come, with a black cap on her head, and black shoes on her feet, and a broomstick in her hand: and presently up she came into the dining- hall.
Now, as she had not been asked to the feast she was very angry, and scolded the king and queen very much, and set to work to take her revenge. However, the king hoped still to save his dear child altogether from the threatened evil; so he ordered that all the spindles in the kingdom should be bought up and burnt.
But all the gifts of the first eleven fairies were in the meantime fulfilled; for the princess was so beautiful, and well behaved, and good, and wise, that everyone who knew her loved her.
It happened that, on the very day she was fifteen years old, the king and queen were not at home, and she was left alone in the palace. So she roved about by herself, and looked at all the rooms and chambers, till at last she came to an old tower, to which there was a narrow staircase ending with a little door.
In the door there was a golden key, and when she turned it the door sprang open, and there sat an old lady spinning away very busily. However, she was not dead, but had only fallen into a deep sleep; and the king and the queen, who had just come home, and all their court, fell asleep too; and the horses slept in the stables, and the dogs in the court, the pigeons on the house-top, and the very flies slept upon the walls.
A large hedge of thorns soon grew round the palace, and every year it became higher and thicker; till at last the old palace was surrounded and hidden, so that not even the roof or the chimneys could be seen.
This, however, none of them could ever do; for the thorns and bushes laid hold of them, as it were with hands; and there they stuck fast, and died wretchedly. He told, too, how he had heard from his grandfather that many, many princes had come, and had tried to break through the thicket, but that they had all stuck fast in it, and died.
Now that very day the hundred years were ended; and as the prince came to the thicket he saw nothing but beautiful flowering shrubs, through which he went with ease, and they shut in after him as thick as ever. I love a well-crafted festbier, but a spicy, cinnamon-hinted, brown sugary brew invokes autumnal nostalgia for my East Coast upbringing.
Take that, Terich!

I recently set off on a quest to find these elusive brews while the weather still lingered in the eighties. Only one was to be found, but oh, what a pumpkin beer it was! Thorn Brewing Company National Ave.
In truth it is just a plant, mindless and serene, an expression of thorns and petals. And then…. I refuse to set rules for seasonal enjoyment. Let us know what your favorite gifts are to give the craft beer drinkers in your life and happy holidays from all of us here at TSB! Rating details. Very descriptive. One is convinced that this is a rare case of spontaneous human combustion.
To publicly unite the two eternally maligned beverages for a wholly new concoction altogether struck me as ballsy and even potentially disastrous. The 4. It reminded me of a cold morning on a salt-sprayed beach, but eventually evolved into fresh hay and chilled pumpkin pie.
The flavor was, in all honesty, pretty bizarre. Pumpkin is a fairly mild flavor, so this is more of a squash-esque soda than an autumnal ale.
