6Rivers Begins the Year!

Some friends and I decided that Sprenger's Tap Room would be a fine venue for watching the Badgers battle a tree (?). As usual, there was quite a beer selection available and, as usual, I chose something new to try, in this case, 6Rivers Sasquatch Ale. It's high alcohol (9%) was well balanced with the hoppy, roasted malt flavors with very little bitterness in the finish. The dark color (10+ SRM) was inviting tho the glass had been over-poured with no head. 
I also had a 101North Heroine IPA, which I have discussed in the past. It went well with the spicy wings (as did the Sasquatch) and I noticed a bit more malty sweetness this time, tho it's the hoppy flavor that sets this one apart.
Regardless of the fact the the Badgers did not topple the Tree, we had a fun time, filled with beer, food and laughs. My kinda day!!

Here's how the Brewery describes the Sasquatch that I enjoyed:

Sasquatch Ale - Alcohol content 9.3%
Strongly and aggressively hopped. Legendary flavor, like the beast itself.

Also saw this description of another of their ales which I certainly find interesting and want to try:

Chile Pepper Ale - Alcohol content 6.0%
