Wolverine State emOATable Lager

Formerly brewed at Wolverine State Brewing Company
Ann Arbor, Michigan USA
5.7% · Amber Lager/Vienna · 1 Rating · 36 IBU · Special Release ·
The unique placement of oats in this brew lends a creaminess and smoothness of flavors you won’t find in many lagers, no matter how hard you search. The rounded, complex, roasted flavors of chocolate and black barley hold this dark lager up on a "damn THAT’S good" pedestal--and if that makes us arrogant, well, so be it. Find out for yourself--experience the garnet hue of this brew while reveling in the poignancy of the warm, leathery, rich intricacy of flavor not found in most lager beers. Why is it "emOATing" you ask? We believe that this beer is good enough to make a grown man cry, that’s why!
