Montana: Moose Drool

Brewer: Big Sky Brewing

Style: American Brown Ale

Montana is a sleeper beer state. It ranks third in the country for breweries per capita (just ahead of Colorado), with practically any town big enough for a stoplight to have one setting up shop. Big Sky's Moose Drool, however, is the only interaction most beer drinkers have had with Montana. That's a good thing. Big Sky's flagship brown ale is a highly-drinkable, near perfect take on the style with smooth molasses and roasted barley flavors.
