Batch 17

As You Wish: Young's Double Chocolate Stout Clone - 7/12/14

Explaining the Name

Kari & Chris both love the timeless 80s classic, The Princess Bride. In the movie, Westley (played by Cary Elwes), uses the phrase "As you wish" as a stand-in for "I love you" whenever he speaks to Buttercup (Robin Wright).
