A sipper…

Deep and dark in appearance with some reddish hues. Deep mocha-colored head that stuck around for a bit. I’m smelling some rich dark and toasty malts as well as cranberries.  The taste is a mix of dark roasty, toasty malts and a huge, tart cranberry presence. I’m actually detecting some hops here too. I’m enjoying this beer, though I will admit that I’m a big fan of cranberries.

A tasty offering from Surly – probably not my favorite, but still tasty.

I'm one of the lucky ones... I was drinking Minnesota craft beer before I probably should have been doing so... that's not to say that I wasn't drinking Old Style as well, but we won't talk about that... I'm the founder of MNBeer.com and a hardcore advocate of local craft brew. I like to brew beer as well. I also like to ride bikes, but that has nothing to do with beer, so I guess I'll shut up and drink.
