Every January, 300 hardy Telemark skiers converge on the Porcupine Mountains ski area for three days of backcountry touring, lift served high-speed runs, chili cook offs, and dancing to Finnish Reggae music. You gotta have a good beer, Eh? Steve has brewed this American brown ale for the last 9 years in honor of his good friends from all over the Midwest and Canada who attend. Rich, malty, and dry hopped to perfection!

gorditoabd (635) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Sample at the Livery. Pours the color of black tea. Very faint aromas of honey and malt. Taste is sharp of bitter and zesty hops, a HUGE surprise and nothing I picked up in the nose. Full- to medium-body and a great finish. Nice beer!

MrBunn (2738) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Sampler at the Livery. Body is a dingy light brown with a decent head and aromas of citrus, herbal and resiny hops with a little toffee. Flavor is light and refreshing, especially for a brown ale and the hops are heavier than normal for the style, making this almost an IPA.

deyholla (10221) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2012
On tap at Sugar Maple. Pours a clear deep amber with a caramel hue and a creamy white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces thickly. Aroma has a good amount of citrus hops with backing grapefruit, bread and caramel. Flavor is surprisingly hoppy as well with grapefruit and citrus that mellow into a grain and caramel finish. Odd for a brown ale, but I don’t mind!

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2010
On tap @ the Livery. Pour brown with a tan head. Aroma of some chocolate malt, but the citrus hops win out in the aroma. Good flavor, reminded me of a hoppier Surly Furious. Well done.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Very attractive ruby/brown pour with big off-white head. Very hoppy nose...grapefruit and pine. The hops are very prominent upfront in flavor, too. Then comes the roasted caramel and sweet malts. Nicely brewed.
