One thing I learned on my trip, last week, was that craft beers are now going regional. Most states now have beer and other liquors being made in their own jurisdiction. This is probably a good economic project for each of the various states. Here in
have Wild Wood Cellars based out
of . It sells mostly elderberry wine and
elderberry related wines, such as elderflower wine and elderberry mead. There
are breweries, such as River City
Brewing Co, in Mulvane, KS Wichita.
While vacationing near
I had the opportunity to try several locally produced brews and alcohol. Yellowstone National Park
There was Pig Ass Porter, a rather light tasting beer for that type of brew. It was good, but not the best thing I tried. The beer is brewed by Harvest Moon Brewing Co. in Belt
There was also Moose Drool also brewed in Montana. It is made by Big Sky Brewing Co. This
beer was a brown ale and I found it a lot more stout and thick than Pig Ass. I
like the stouter more thick and flavorful beers.
Then there is Yellowstone Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, which was actually made by Yellowstone Distillery Co. in
It was only named for St. Louis, Mo. Yellowstone. It was OK
whiskey. But it wasn't aged very much.
What I really found fascinating was the mead made by Hidden Legend Winery
I bought a bottle of pure honey mead and one with Huckle-Berry in it. huckle
berries are grown in that area. I have not tasted that product yet, but I will
soon and report back on it. Victor, Montana
So I enjoyed many alcohol flavors that I probably can't get here inYumm!
As time goes on I hope to try more flavors of more states and countries.
Here is Pig Ass Porter and Yellowstone Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
I can't wait to try my Yellowstone Mead.
