If we told you that Cub Crap smelled vaguely of wildflowers tasted faintly of exotic fruits you might not want to give it a try, so forget we said that. What if we said Cub Crap is smooth and refreshing with just the tiniest amount of hoppiness, does that sound better? We think it is better to just tell you to drink one for yourself, we think it might surprise you, we think you will be back for another.
Cub Crap Cream Ale has its roots in the Present Use Ales that Grampa Doc enjoyed back east before he migrated west, but it’s soul is all Montana and it’s heart is as big as the wilderness outside our brewery. Cub crap is our second oldest beer, Grampa himself tinkered with the recipe when he had an evening free of tending the brewery or making deliveries. Originally it was bottled as Doc’s Sparkling Ale.
Medium bodied and sweet with just enough bold to be Montana through and through and plenty of the character that our beers are known for. Cub Crap Cream drinks more like a lager thanks to the addition of Lager hops at just the right moment in the brewing process. We keep the alcohol down in this one making it a great session ale.
People have said a lot of things about Cub Crap We have been told that it is like cream sickle with a little kick we are not sure we could have said it better than that.
This hybrid style represents the best of both worlds, the malty sweetness and complexity of 5 different malts hit you first, along with an undercurrent of nuttiness and citrus, then come the multiple varieties of hops with a vengeance.
Great Grampa Francis became enamored with brown ale while travelling in England, so much so that he wanted to serve it at his wedding but he could not find a single beer of the style back in the USA. Francis asked Bearly Legal’s brew master to create a brown ale for his guests. It was so popular – probably due to it being a fortified beer – that after the wedding Bearly Legal Wedding Ale, was released. B.L. Wedding Ale was a favorite of many locals but was never a commercial success and the product only lasted three years before the recipe was shelved.
Beau found the recipe in an old ledger book in the basement of the brewer and started tinkering the way beau does.it was not until Beau combined his love of hoppy IPA style brews with his re-imagined brown ale that he achieved the perfect blend he was seeking. Bear Scat was born and quickly became our number one seller.
Grampa Jon always liked porters and stouts and asked young Beau to craft a porter style beer worthy of the family reputation. Then he waited impatiently for the result. Beau worked for five years to perfect the recipe hoping it would please his father. It very much did.
Dark, smooth proud and mysterious with a real sense of purpose, this robust Porter gets it’s start with Black, smoked, chocolate and malts then is rousted with coffee touched with maple and kissed ever so lightly with our brewers own secret touch. Of course we kick up the hopiness by introducing seven separate distinct hops.
Grizzly Poo is a medium- heavy bodied brew which pours a resounding mahogany color and leave a lacy tan head. It is coffee to your nose, and chocolate to your palette. Oh sure it starts sweet but just sit a second while the rush of hops arrives. There it is.
