New Glarus Fat Squirrel Ale

It's beer time again. Lon and I sat on our deck in the late afternoon sunshine and enjoyed our beers today. Lon prefers his Miller High Life Light. Today's beer of the day for me is New Glarus Brewing Co. Fat Squirrel Ale. I like it. Of course, I do! I haven't met a beer yet than I didn't like enough to at least drain the bottle dry.

I love reading the labels on beer bottles.

Fat Squirrel's label reads: "One deceptively springlike winter day, Brewmaster Dan walked home ...from the brewery, sat down to dinner and said, "Boy there are some fat squirrels out there. They're running all over the place. I think I should brew a Fat Squirrel Nut Brown Ale." Deb agreed and so another beer legend was born. 100% Wisconsin malt of six different varieties impart the natural toasted color to this bottle conditioned unfiltered ale. Clean hazelnut notes result from these carefully chosen barley malts. Hops from Slovenia, Bavaria and the Pacific Northwest give Fat Squirrel its backbone. When the going gets tough remember to relax a moment and enjoy the 'Fat Squirrel' in your neighborhood. Truly yours, Daniels & Deborah Carey
