Tribal masks, motley clothing, loud musicians- teen angst has remained unchanged since ancient times. For an unknown period in Ireland, crowds of youngins known as "Wren Boys & Girls" took to the road to accomplish one unified objective. Hunt the wren. One glance at the serious Hunger Games beauty to the right says the poor little bird didn't stand a chance. Death of the unfortunate wren signified the end of winter and the beginning of spring or growing season. Hence the birth of spring and winter's demise. Cut to present day civility. At Wren Hop we try to keep the rituals down to morning coffee and a light hazing of the new cellar intern.
