Featuring unique ingredients such as Minnesota wild rice and maple syrup, Summit Cranky Woodsman celebrates the flavorful and aromatic terroir of the Upper Midwest. Lacey barley from Alexandria, MN provides the foundation for a rich mahogany-colored beer with notes of toast, graham cracker and smoke, while Cascade hops from Mighty Axe Farms offer a hint of spice and citrus to complement a slight maple-syrup sweetness.
