The brewers at Moon River have decided that Groundhog Day, the day we as a nation watch grown men dress up in black tie and obsess over a large rodent, is underrated. Weeks or even months before holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Valentine’s Day stores are filled with themed objects for purchase. Whistle-Pig Day gets nothing! No top hats or bow ties for sale, no plush rodents! But who would buy such silliness anyway? There is no reason to miss out though; Moon River has decided to shamelessly exploit Woodchuck Day for everyone.
With this goal in mind, we have brewed up a delicious Belgo-American Pale Ale that weighs in at 6.3% ABV. Subtle caramel flavors blend in and balance a fruity Belgian yeast character that is topped with large amounts of American west-coast hops.
If this wasn’t enough, the ale was then transferred into tequila barrels for aging. Soon, a new beer was born with the same fruitiness, but now complimented by complex flavors of vanilla, bourbon, oak, and tequila. Sombra de Marmota! The Groundhog’s Shadow! What does this beer have to do with Land-Beaver Day? Nothing really.
