Brew of the Day -- Big Sky Brewing (7/8/04)

I'm happy to say I knew the guys who started Big Sky Brewing way back when -- as in, before they started their business, when they were the "Beer Talk" guys. Brad and Neal had a TV show on Missoula Community Access Television where they discussed beers from around the world, gave beer advice, took phone calls and drank beer on air.

Brad recently left the company to move on to other challenges, but Big Sky Brewing has really taken off. They've been winning awards for their beers since they first put them out on the market, and they've become the first brewery in North America to bottle their beer in aluminum bottles. Yes, aluminum!

Recently, the BSB folks were a little discouraged that Missoula was unable to bring in more musicians and bands to the area because there wasn't a proper venue for them to play. So Big Sky Brewing built a new amphetheater near their brewing plant over by the Missoula Airport.

Myself, I've never been a huge fan of Slow Elk, but Moose Drool has been my favorite since I first tasted it all those years ago. Back in the days when I had a few more dollars to spare, I'd keep a keg of it in the downstairs fridge -- a nice way to pass the summer.

As a matter of fact, I just realized as I write this, I'm wearing my red, white and blue Moose Drool t-shirt -- serendipity, I believe it's called!

(p.s. -- The name "Moose Drool" came about when, I think it was Neal's mother-in-law, was painting designs the company was considering using for their packaging. She painted the Moose, but at the time they didn't have a name for their new brown ale. After studying the painting for awhile, one of the folks said something like, "man, that moose is really drooling!" Bingo! Off the wall, interesting, and just disgusting enough to be cool. And the rest, as they say, is history.)
