IN ANCIENT Chinese medicine, the “Triple Burner” was responsible for the production and flow of energy throughout the body. The Triple Burner, or “San Jiao”, is not an actual organ of the body, but a sort of "spiritual water wheel” that takes in food, water, light and air, and transforms them into the life force known as “qi”. Tonics supporting the Triple Burner often included licorice root to encourage “natural sweetness and a light, joyful presence.”
We don’t know if it’s all true, there’s no denying that it sounds really cool. And frankly, we think everyone’s "qi” could use a little more balance. White wine barrels, a licorice spice blend from the famed spice wizard Lior Lev Sercarz, and a strong Belgian-inspired tripel base create Tripel Burner, a heady, aromatic ale that reaches a higher state of serenity.
