Default Cronk is the drink

U of C researcher and Political-Sci instructor (and noted Twitter wag) Paul Fairie spotted this in an early edition of the Calgary Herald.

https://twitter.com/paulisci/status/1274846696778788864

Which lead to a CBC story.
https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calga...weet-1.5624258

Which lead to the discovery of a recipe.

Now local brewery Cold Garden has said that they'll recreate it.

(Stay tuned, other microbreweries might get into the act).

Also, you can order a T-Shirt here (shameless plug).

I imagine someone is trademarking it right now, if not you should.

How well will Cronk go with the Prune and Donut salad?

Placing an order Monday for a second shipment as I'm close to selling out on the pre-orders. Am also prototyping a second Cronk design. This is nuts.

A charity fundraising component will be added into the t-shirt sales. I've been in contact with Dr. Fairie and it should be finalized very soon. A local charity.

My grandad used to take me to the last temperance bar in London when I was a kid, it was just down the road from Dirty Dicks pub up around Petticoat Lane market, I recall drinking mugs of sarsaparilla with him
