American Stout Ale
At GoodLife Brewing, we add Northwest twists to all our creations and feel this beer is a perfect example. Why you ask? Well, it is an American Stout, a category that is the outcome of US based brewers’ vision for a stout, resulting in a smooth bodied ale with subtle hints of roasted malt and chocolate combined with a slight coffee and cocoa character. Yes, there are more twists, but we forgot to write them down.
The label of this beer is a work of art that has a few twists of its own. Created with the help of a lady loaded with artistic ability and soul, it tells a story. Did they wearer of the boots, hike the pass in the backdrop? Did they pitch a tent with purpose? Did they celebrate a day in the outdoors with our stout? Are they passed out – ah asleep? We hope the answers are unequivocally yes.
Life is short - live it with purpose, share your stories and always sleep well so you can make it over that Pass and have a Stout.

Draft at Collins Pub. Nothing noteworthy. To the point that i cant think of anything worth describing. My only reaction while drinking this was it’s kind of like sierra nevada stout but i’d rather drink that. Also it was a little boozy.
