Mountain Livin’ Pale Ale

Crazy Mountain Brewing is a can-only brewery that hails from Vail Valley, Colorado and has just recently opened up to limited nation-wide distributing.Being in one of the select few states to get their beer, this was my first entry into the beers that make up Crazy Mountain.

The finish is both dry and slightly sweet leaving your taste-buds ready for the next drink. Read More »
