“A Divided Dry” Layered Beer

When you're afforded an opportunity for long sought-after revenge, celebrate with a few beers first! 

And don't worry about choosing between your two favorites … have the best of both worlds with this week's Pick Your Poison—where we create a cocktail inspired by a recently published mystery, thriller, or crime novel—“A Divided Dry,” a layered beer inspired by Charles Cumming's 3rd Thomas Kell novel, A Divided Spy!

A Divided Spy by Charles Cumming is the 3rd book in the Thomas Kell series (available February 14, 2017).

Thomas Kell thought he was done with spying. A former MI6 officer, he devoted his life to the Service, but it has left him with nothing but grief and a simmering anger against the Kremlin.

Then Kell is offered an unexpected chance at revenge. Taking the law into his own hands, he embarks on a mission to recruit a top Russian spy who is in possession of a terrifying secret. As Kell tracks his man from Moscow to London, he finds himself in a high stakes game of cat and mouse in which it becomes increasingly difficult to know who is playing whom.

As the mission reaches boiling point, the threat of a catastrophic terrorist attack looms over Britain. Kell is faced with an impossible choice. Loyalty to MI6—or to his own conscience?
