A beer that is getting more popular in the midwest is from Big Sky brewing (www.bigskybrew.com) out of Montana. Moose Drool is a brown ale and, according to their website, is the most popular beer brewed in Montana. They claim it is the best brown ale on the market; it is good, but it is not as good as Rogue’s Hazelnut Brown Nectar. The good thing about this beer is that it is a more affordable brown ale than Rogue’s. Moose Drool is an excellent choice for a brown ale, malty, creamy, and just enough hops to make it so it’s not too sweet.
Pour: Dark brown pour with a small off-white head.
Aroma: Malts, caramel, and hops.
Taste: Sweet caramel flavor with hop in the end. A really good brown ale.
Overall: A top of the line brown ale and the price ranges from $6.99-$8.99 for a six pack make it pretty affordable. Give it a try!
Eastern Iowa residents: Hy-Vee and John’s Grocery carry this beer year round.
