A Life Lived Well
Born in the hills of WV, Air Force Veteran, Husband, Father and all around bada**. Shane Kiser a.k.a. King Ragnar was the very best of us. He was kind and hilarious, the smartest person in every room, and unfortunately for the rest of us, he knew it.
A Viking at heart, and by blood, we pay tribute to him now in the best way we know how. The hardest part of losing him at the age of 47, to ALS, is knowing that no one else will have the honor of getting to meet him. He made us all better, kinder, happier human beings. He challenged us to be the very best versions of ourselves and he helped everyone he met on their own personal journey to become just that. That is the legacy we want to keep alive today.
In November 2021, we at Valkyrie Farms combined our 100% organic Nicaraguan bean with Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company's Mothman Black IPA. The flavor created is unmatched, and we knew it was one we had to share with the world. Like Ragnar, who we honor with the name, Ragnar's Raid is bold and smokey. A nod to our king and a testament to the eternal impact his life had on all those who had the honor of meeting him.
Til Valhalla, my cousin.
Forever my king.
