I was so excited to see this Missoula, Montana, microbrew—tag line “We Make Water Fun”—in a liquor store near my friend’s house. Moose Drool is a lighter-bodied brown ale with no bitterness, a little maltiness, and a slightly sweet finish. (It’s a nice break from all the highly hopped, intense ales that it seems everybody prefers these days.) Very drinkable, no weird or annoying flavors. And the name, of course, is priceless.
