New Beer Blog Lake Louie Coon Rock Cream Ale


When in Milwaukee, this beer I had at a restaurant near our hotel and my phone was dead.  I had some notes just sitting by my computer for a few weeks while I was trying to caught up on my posts.  I am sorry to the brewery and my readers that it is taking me this long to put this post up.  Lake Louie Brewing was founded in 1999 by Tom Porter.  Lake Louie brought land in the city of Arena, Wisconsin from Tom’s Uncle Louie, which is where they came up with the name of the brewery.  In January 2012, they signed an agreement to see their beers being sold throughout the state of Wisconsin.  Let us get into the beer.

Lake Louie Coon Rock Cream Ale has a clear golden color without a head on the beer.  The smell is a little different.  It has a smell of fresh air or no smell at all.  I am from Chicago so that could be the Wisconsin area.  LOL!  It has a weird taste that I could not figure out but has a crisp hoppy finish.  It has a sweet carbonation almost like a pilsner.  It is extremely drinkable beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.lakelouie.com):

A Pre-Prohibition Cream Ale, using flaked corn for a very creamy and full-bodied beer.  Lightly hopped with traditional varieties that would have been grown in Wisconsin a hundred years ago.  The ultimate “Lawn Mower beer.”  ABV 5.7%  IBU 16

Closing, this is a really good beer and this beer tells me anything about the rest of their beers.  I believe the rest of their beers are really good too.  I will be making another trip up to Wisconsin in the winter and I will be looking up their other beers.  This beer is so true to the Wisconsin beers as a Lawn Mower Beer.  It is a beer you can drink all day.  This is a very good beer and I highly recommend this beer to any mass-produced beer or a craft beer drinker looking for a great session beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
