This weekend calls for a beer that leads us into the chilly months without ignoring the sunny, golden-leaved weather. It's time for changing seasons and time for new ingredients when we give you this week's happiest hour at the Big Sky Brewery.
What’s new: After five years of sticking to the tried-and-true formula, Big Sky Brewery has changed its recipe for Powder Hound. The new brew is lighter and much more bitter, with a blend that includes—if you want to get geeky about it—Hallertau, Palisade and Amarillo hops. Also, it’s much stronger now, with a 7.2 percent alcohol-by-volume (ABV), up from its former 6.2 percent.
