The world of the Mad Knight started with a Wu-Tang Clan name generator and a bar called Rocky's in Bowling Green, Ky. When owner/brewer, Connor, settled on the name Mad Knight Brewing Company, he approached local artist, Jordan Speer, about finding a way to make the brand half way interesting. From that meeting came the Realm of the Mad Knight, where not only are these beers they're also stories and villain's. When we release a staple beer, we release a comic detailing the story of the Mad Knight's quest. Comics are only available in the taproom, so come get one before you miss out
