Ed Likes His Beer:
It's grim up north. But is it bitter? Well, yes if you're drinking some Tyranena Brewing Company's Bitter Woman IPA (5.75% ABV, Lake Mills, WI) on Stormy Lake in Conover, Wisconsin. The beer hits you with a hardwood IPA hops punch in the mouth, and when you back away from the shock, it goes right at you again for some more. A few sips and you start looking exactly like the woman on the label.
This beer ain't for delicate hors d'oeuvres and don't even place it near a dainty dessert or there will be tears. But when you're roughin' it up in the north land, when you're beat up from too many hard nights in a tent, or too many cold days on the lake, well then this beer may be just what you need.
Or maybe not. B
