I think Spanish Peaks Brewing Company got as close as you can to building a dream company: They have a black lab named Chug for a mascot, their slogan is “No Whiners”, and they spend all day making beer. And not just any beer. A highly regarded, award winning, craft beer. My job app is in the mail.
Spanish Peaks first brewed their Black Dog Ale back in 1991 in Bozeman, Montana. After winning several medals at the Great International Beer Tasting, (Yes, there really is one. And you can add International Beer Tasting Judge to the list of dream jobs), Chug passing over to the Great Brewery in the Sky, and a few year hiatus, it is back and revitalized.
Personally I am a fan of beer with a lot of flavor. I like ales, and this is a great English style amber with tons of clean malt flavor. It’ll go well with that steak you were thinking of throwing on the grill this weekend.
Bring a six-pack over to your buddy’s place to watch the game this weekend. It beats the same old domestic you drink all the time. Just don’t forget to toast the memory of Chug. And no whining.
