Top 7 Beers To Drink On World Naked Gardening Day
Ever watch the setting sun turn a field of wheat into a blanket of spun gold? Not
to worry if you haven’t, Big Rock has bottled it for you. It’s prairie goodness so pure that no matter where you choose to enjoy it, just close your eyes to find yourself in that field of dreams.
A light touch of hops gives this brew a crisp finish, balancing its soft sweetness and texture with fruity or citrusy notes.
Wheat beers, particularly Grasshopper, are known for their versatility. Grasshopper pairs well with foods like grilled chicken, smoked fish and barbecue shrimp kabobs.
The Naked Woodsman Pale Ale grows more complex, unraveling more flavours the longer you savour it. Notes of fresh bread and light caramel malt flavours mix with bright floral, grapefruit and orange hop aromatics. There’s a sweetness to it – apricot and peach hop flavours combine with subdued citrus. It finishes with a star of anise spiciness that makes you think this somewhat fruit-forward brew could be paired with herb-crusted chicken for dinner, and also with lemon tart for dessert.
Born from infamy, our Naked Fox is a sly one. This dry IPA is brewed using a variety of North American and Southern Hemisphere hops, packing in everything you’d want in hop flavour and aroma into a single beer. The dryness on the malt side let’s the hops shine through.
Brewed with a blend of pale and crystal malts, and both kettle and dry hopped with Ella, our sessionable Garden Ale has a citrus aroma balanced with a clean malt characters and an easy bitter finish
Our Saison has blossomed into something fresh. Reflecting the variety of wildflower, this specialty release infuses our Belgian farmhouse ale with chamomile and elderflower for a balanced bouquet of spice and bloom.
This is Montana’s Most Award Winning IPA! It’s amber color and incredible hoppy aroma (plenty of Cascade & Centennial hops) along with a strong malt backbone using Montana gown and malted barley work together to create an incredibly well balanced IPA.
Freak of Nature. Noun. 1. An unusual, unexpected natural phenomenon. 2. An outlying, west coast style double India Pale Ale brewed with an abnormally large quantity of hops. 3. A delicately crafted, and crushable ale designed for fresh and immediate consumption. 4. A hophead’s vice or downfall. Ex: Though warned about its habit-forming hoppiness, they were seduced by the dank, tropical, and drinkable Freak of Nature.
