A Grand Discovery of Liquid Luxury
Door County Brewing Co. Presents Bare Bottom Madness
You have to give the people what they want, and what they want is a good IPA. Which is why Door County Brewing Co. is thrilled to announce the newest addition to the family is our Bare Bottom Madness Pale Ale. Inspired by our surroundings and heritage, every single beer we brew has a story. A tale of fortune, Bare Bottom Madness is about celebration, no matter the circumstance, because isn’t that what beer is all about.
In the early 1900s there was a sheep farmer in Sevastopol named Mr. Templeton. New to his profession, he often needed the townspeople’s guidance on herding his flock. One particular occasion, searching for salt to lure the sheep in, the town stumbled upon what they thought to be three barrels of salt. Templeton pried the barrels open, which to everyone’s surprise, was a liquid. He smelled it. It smelled like beer. He tasted it. It tasted like beer. He concluded, “It is beer!” Thrilled at their grand discovery of liquid luxury, Sevastopol celebrated with haste, forgot the sheep and reached the bottom of the barrels quite quickly. With barrels dry and sheep amuck the town danced themselves into and unforgettable bare bottom madness. A madness that celebrates the unexpected, our pale ale is brewed with notes of grapefruit, citrus and pine with touch of caramel malt for sweetness. Bare Bottom Madness rejoices in the flavors of Door County you’re so happy to find, you can’t bare the thought of the bottom.
“With our signature blend of Cascade and Chinook hops and a robust amount of oats, this soft, full and balanced pale ale is hop forward not very bitter with a huge aroma and great citrus flavor,” said Head Brewer Danny McMahon. “Crushable, with just the right amount of hops.”
