Gentleman George Hunter
Camp Depression Lager
Crisp, slightly sweet, with a traceable hop finish. Camp Depression was an old logging camp north of Gooseberry Falls State Park. For those who stayed, the top bunk meant warm and comfortable, and the bottom bunk meant a long cold night. Since lagers are bottom and cold fermented, I thought this a suitable name. Coming Soon!
