Ya gotta love a brew that calls itself "Moose Drool."
I sure do.
Yes, this week's gratitude post is about beer. I'm grateful that I can tolerate a bit of alcohol now and again and I am grateful that I had the chance to drink a bottle of this fine beer when we were in Montana over the long weekend.
It has top notes* of dark coffee and dark chocolate and a lovely finish with a wee hint of bitter. It is refreshing, entertaining, and goes very well with steak.
I'd seen it around at various spots in the state, but I confess to being initially put off by the name. But on our way home on Sunday we stopped at a steakhouse and I decided to give it a go after asking the waitress what local brews were available. She suggested this and let me see the bottle first.
I'm glad I tried it. I was so taken with it that the next morning I found some in a convenience store when we stopped for gas and brought a half-dozen home with me.
They're waiting in the fridge.
Nota bene, the Moose Drool makers, Big Sky Brewing Co., in Missoula, Montana have not paid me to shill for them.
*I have no idea if this is the right term for discussing the taste of beer.
