An American craft beer on a Sunday evening is the final beer of the weekend and the beginning beer for a new week. It serves both those purposes so in my minds eye it should, and must, be an above average beer to stat off and end on the right foot.
I had a hard time finding information on Pennichuck brewery, noticing that it seems to be out of business, therefore making it difficult to find much about Rustwagen itself. Based on my readings this beer might have some age on it, causing some of the foulness that I observed.
I will definitely not have another as I don’t think that I could. If you happen across a beer from Pennichuck be careful as everything points to them being out of business and the chance of a fresh beer is slim. Enjoy!

Useless Fact: During the Napoleonic wars, Napoleon’s soldiers bivouacked in the chapel of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, where Leonardo’s Last Supper is located. The soldiers used the painting in target practice, shooting at the central figure of Christ’s head. This is why the face of Christ is almost obliterated in the painting.
