My second favorite from my visit to the tap room. Big nutty taste followed by a burst of piney hops. Great fizz to it as well. Growler worthy.

Howler from the brewery. I was sure it said something about it being a rye lager. It certainly seemed like it had that spicy rye taste and a reddish brown color. Slightly cloudy beer. Very good. Serving: Tap
