Donn's Famous Horse Cram It In Brown Ale

My Dad has always told a story about playing rodeo in the front yard with his brother and sister while his mom was sewing. I guess they were under ten or so, and this was back in the 40s. My Uncle Donn would announce himself and his horse, "And now here's Donn and his famous horse Cram It In!" Dad said his mom didn't even look up from her sewing to say, "I think you need to change your horse's name."

We're having a family reunion at the end of July, and this beer was brewed in his honor.
