Moose Drool?


How many of you would be willing to take a slug of this brew?! I seem to be chasing down my photo ops lately because when I saw this truck on the road, I followed it to the local store to be able to post this little bit of local lore from Montana. The driver said they sell lots and lots of this product. He used to work for Budweiser Beer but now drives "the moose" around. Think I'll stick to red or white wine. But....if you're interested, go to their website (on back of truck) for some interesting information about the brew and the company.

Today in Minnesota History: 1926 - Robert Bly is born in Madison. A poet, translator, editor, and activist in the men's movement, he would write numerous books, including the best-selling nonfiction work on men and myth, Iron John: A Book About Men.

  1. Excuse my ignorance but what is the plural for moose? Mooses or Meese? :-)

    Merry Christmas!!

  2. Ha ha ha ha. Excellent capture... I can see you chasing down the mooosie truck !! When we went to Minn. this past summer we found a sign like this and my daugher (who loves moooooosies) took her photo next to one. So this just made me laugh. Thanks for the memory as well. Aloha Renee :)

  3. Hmmm, not too sure about that name...It is eye-catching and I bet people try it just because of the funny name.

  4. HAHA! I've actually had a beer or two of this. The name of it peaked my curiousity and I had to give it a whirl. It's a dark ale with a taste of something that was very unique that I've never had in a beer, chocolate or something that was sweet tasting if I recall correctly. To be honest, it was rather good for having such a silly name.

    I'm glad you chased this truck down for the photo opp, it put a smile on my face.

  13. Well, it is certainly marketing name. I'd have to taste it to see if I wanted to drink it. I'd taste it on Slinger's recommendation.

  19. Oh, I've downed my share, but I hardly ever drink beer anymore -- but I think I would pass on anything named Moose Drool, no matter how good it was supposed to be...

  24. It certainly is a healthier looking moose than the one that used to walk the streets in Northern Exposure.

  25. Moose Drool is a competent copy of Newcastle Brown Ale. Taste's good, sells better.
