A friend brought over the Boatilla amber ale from Big Bay Brewing
. I usually like my ales a little more hoppy, but this one was very tasty. I see they will be at the Alliant Center beer and cheese fest.
I grew up in Whitefish Bay, and the village has a park/beach on Big Bay, close to my family home. When I googled the brewery, it was obvious they were named for that beach. They are located on Oakland in Shorewood, very close to the border with WfB. It's good to know a brewery is so close to my childhood home. My banker brother (who works for M&I,) still lives in the village and can now drown his sorrows with a good, local beer.
