Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, KB (29 September 1758 – 21 October 1805) was a British flag officer famous for his service in the Royal Navy, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars.
As he stood at the bridge of HMS Seahorse at the end of the in the Battle of Santa Cruz de Tenerife Lord Nelson dreamed of one day retiring from his sea battles to a more peaceful life of trail adventures and the simplicity of riding a mountain bike.
He also wanted to enjoy his post ride relaxation and thus created the Three Sheets Pale Ale in honour of the three things he loved the most: Mountain biking, trails, and beer. Created in the stern manner in which he commanded the Royal fleet this delicious ale delightfully balances malted scents with soft overtones of herbaceous hop characters, citrus flora’s and aromas.
In the dying moments of his life, Lord Nelson had just these few simple words, “Drink, drink. Ride, ride. Fun, fun.”. His historic words alone tell you the truth about a beer that is a prefect post ride partner.
Always drink the Three Sheets as Lord Nelson would, with your left arm.
