Commercial Description

Lake Erie Monster stories are
like fish stories. Drink a few of these handcrafted Imperial IPAs and you’re bound to start boasting
and weaving wild tales of mythic proportions.
Drink more and you might even have visions of South Bay Bessie, the freshwater cryptid for which our Lake Erie Monster is named, lifting her
scaly head above the surface of Lake Erie. Or the Cuyahoga River. Or a kiddie pool. Actually, if you
see Bessie in a kiddie pool, take it easy. You’ve probably had too many.

    Pours lighter than you would expect a DIPA to be, but don’t let that fool you, this monster packs quite the bite. One whiff and you’ll know. Sweet honey and malt and first, then a huge hit from the hops. Sweet citrus, some pine, and lingering grapefruit. Bit of heat at the end with 9.1% ABV. Considering there are only two malts: Harrington 2-Row and Caramel 30, and two hops: Simcoe and Willamette, Monster has amazing complexity. One of my favorite IPAs. It’s a shame it’s a seasonal
