The only thing that goes better together than fishing and beer is … well, nothing. So here are a few of the Eastern Sierra’s finest local brews for angling, lying about angling or just toasting another splendid day in the High Sierra.
When local Beer Geeks found out that Mammoth Brewing Company (MBC) was coming out with micro-brew in a can, the question that echoed throughout the Eastern Sierra was: “What kind of hops have are they smoking over there at MBC and, more importantly, why aren’t they sharing?”
It turns out, though, they’ve only been using the hops to brew with, and after MBC was one of the first microbreweries to come out with canned beer half-dozen summers ago, the new question became: “What took ya so long?”
MBC’s Golden Trout pilsner is a light, refreshing beer that has a perfect hoppy hint to it. It’s a great beer for any warm summer afternoon or evening, or perhaps morning if you live by the theory that it’s always five o’clock somewhere. But what really separates Golden Trout Pilsner from the pack (and MBC’s Epic IPA, which is also available in cans) is that it allows beer lovers to finally be able to bring into the backcountry a beer that’s not only easy to pack out—but one that’s worth packing in in the first place!
MBC’s canned, bottled and on tap array of award-winning beers are available throughout Mammoth Lakes and the Eastern Sierra.Read More
