Pick this up: New Glarus Moon Man

A great tailgate option in an easy-to-pack can.
/ 0

Wisconsin-based New Glarus first released Moon Man in the spring of 2010, but the pale ale debuted in cans this summer, giving us a chance to revisit an old favorite in a new way. The dynamic sip tastes fresher than ever: Orange juice and freshly mown lawn aromas pop off the golden pour; zesty lime emerges after a few beats. On the tongue, juicy pineapple and orange marmalade zip through the mouth, while subtle, honey like malts run quietly underneath; smooth bitterness closes the swallow, leaving just a kiss of honeydew melon and grass behind. Cans make this easy-drinking beer a cinch to transport—a big plus, because if you want to enjoy this beer outside the “No Coast” state of Wisconsin, you’ll have to pack it out yourself.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
