Ant Hill Kids

Ant Hill Kids is a terrifying story of a cult out of first Quebec and then Ontario Canada.  Running from 1977 to 1989 the cult was full of torture and fear.  Hard to believe it grew out of a Charismatic member of the Mormon Church.  This story is triggering and horrible take that as a warning.

This story paired with a snake bite made with Parallel 49 Brewing’s Hive Mind Braggot.
