As legend has it, he scoured the island for ingredients to brew ale for his crew. Alas, he found none and fell asleep on the shore. Under the light of the full moon, he awoke to a sensuous mermaid with jet black hair and a devilish grin. Sitting at water's edge, she beckoned to Gosnold. The closer he got, the further she swam- tempting him to follow. So he did. Finally, he found himself in a field brimming with lush island grapes. These would be perfect for wine, he thought. But nay, he was an Englishman, so these grapes became the secret ingredient for a robust, refreshing beer. Gosnold never saw the mermaid again. He went to his grave wondering if he ever saw her at all. Today, we brew every handcrafted beer as Gosnold did, with grape leaves harvested on the Vineyard and a splash of the mermaid's mischief. Naturally, we had no choice but to name our beer after the elusive siren who started it all. Bad Martha." Please note: You must be 21 years old or older to enjoy this page (Legal Drinking Age).
