Grim Reaper's Eulogy

Quality, tradition, proudly independent. These words do not merely grace the bottle and label. They embody the beer. The Moose has been loose for nearly a century and a half. This was the beer to "go and get" on a Saturday night, back in the day.

I was passing the grocers cooler when I came across a twelve pack with a special gift inside. Being a sucker for a freebie, I found that there was a 1 of 12 collectible stainless steel drink coaster with a built in opener stamped into one corner. Heck. I hadn't reviewed a Moose yet, so into the cart went my prize. Moosehead has always been good at the giveaways over the years. I still have a wooden display crate and lid that they used to sell 24 packs of bottles from way back in the 80's.

Stone Cold Fact: A woman named
Susannah Oland first started brewing in her Dartmouth, Nova Scotia back yard which became the genesis for Moosehead brewing.

The beer is as good as I remember. Best of all, there was no 'skunk' in this batch. Green bottle beers occasionally suffer from this condition and the Moose had its share of those batches from time to time. The only thing in this 12 pack was cold Canadian lager refreshment and a cool coaster/opener to boot. I felt the urge to say boot, like in about. You know what I'm talkin' about (aboot).

Turn your inner Moose loose and don't forget to stop by their way cool website.
