Aristotle once said “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”

The idea was that if you combine already great things, you can take it to the next level.  A scant 2300 years after his death, Excelsior Brewing is proud to prove his theory correct with the release of the Dockbox.  Our four signature brews– XLCR, Bitteschlappe, Bridge Jumper and Big Island Blond combined in one twelve-pack box to offer beer drinkers variety and a rare chance to corroborate a Greek philosopher by drinking beer.

Why four?  Because great things generally come in fours. 

The A-Team

No one likes injustice.  So when a crack commando unit of four was sent to prison for a crime they didn’t commit, it rubbed all Americans wrong.  The foursome promptly escaped and became fugitive mercenaries in the Los Angeles underground using hand grenades and machine guns to blast lemons into lemonade.  It was vigilante justice served up with automatic weapons on the streets of LA from a shockingly conspicuous van.  Something today we’d call terrorist threat level 1 billion and end with a series of drone strikes, in 1982 it was simply called justice.

Spinal Tap

In life, it’s hard to get to a perfect 10.  It took four visionaries to raise the stakes even higher.  David St. Hubbins, Derek Smalls, Nigel Tufnel and Viv Savage attained 11 through hard work and perseverance.  Despite repeated setbacks including drummers combusting on stage and meddling girlfriends, the iconic band eventually rose to #5 on the Japanese charts with their seminal hit Sex Farm.  This set the stage for a Smell the Glove tour for the ages, and cemented the power of four.

Is the dockbox as powerful as BA Baracus?   Can dockbox prevent spontaneous human combustion?   The lawyers won’t let us say for sure, but with a taste spectrum spanning four of our best, at this point we can’t rule either possibility out.
