Beer Advent Day 2: Rustic Red

Rustic Red

Location: Wisconsin Dells, WI

Style: Amber Red Ale, ABV: 5%….American red ale with caramel & aromatic Munich Malts for smooth drinkability & a sweet, malty finish.  Open the bottle, pour into an English pint glass, admire the red hue, and enjoy the simple taste of a simple beer from the simple state of Wisconsin.

Advent Reading: Genesis 49:8-12  The Sceptor of Judah

8 “Judah, your brothers shall praise you; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s sons shall bow down before you.
9 Judah is a lion’s cub; from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He stooped down; he crouched as a lion and as a lioness; who dares rouse him?
10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until tribute comes to him; and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.
11 Binding his foal to the vine and his donkey’s colt to the choice vine, he has washed his garments in wine and his vesture in the blood of grapes.
12 His eyes are darker than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk.
(Gen 49:8-12 ESV)

Reflect:  Who was/is a person in your life who has influenced you in forming your character?

  1. I found this beer to be pretty standard when comparing it to other Amber Red’s that I have had. Nice red color on the pour and can definitely taste the maltiness. Could put down a few these while eating pizza I’m sure.

    As I was reflecting on the reflection questions, I was thinking of my father and how much of an influence he has played in my life. I deeply respect and admire his passion for the Word of God and for his love of my mother. He has definitely left a legacy in my life that I will forever be grateful.


  2. I, too, have my dad to thank for leaving a legacy. I often find myself thinking of him when I come home from a long day at work and don’t “feel” like serving my wife and family. He always went right to work when he got home from a job he didn’t love. His love for my mother and his family was (and is) evident, and it’s been an example and a challenge for me more times than I can count.

    It was cool to have a beer from Wisconsin Dells as we just got back today from a couple day trip to Chula Vista. A very smooth beer.


  3. This beer is brewed on-site at the MooseJaw restaurant in the Dells. Best fries I have ever had and their prime rib and burgers are awesome. My son is a burger expert and he says MooseJaw burgers are almost as good as Quaker Steak and Red Robin.

    My dad left his legacy on me with his work ethic. He owned & operated a small-town Bakery in Luck WI about an hour northeast of Minneapolis. Summers were extremely busy with tourists and fisherman in Indianhead Country (most don’t know where/what that is. . .). It was common for him to work 80 hours in a week and he never complained once and only missed two days to illness in 25+ years! My father just passed away last month so this holiday season is a little less joyous than most but I can still look back fondly of many childhood memories with him and my mom. Truly one of my many blessings!


  4. My Mom definitely had a large role in the formation of my character. She taught me that we can be fierce but also gracious, devoted but merciful, steadfast and kind. Although I can at times be rather gregarious (cough, loud), she taught me (and continues to teach me) that it’s not always the loudest voice that’s the most powerful, but the quiet one that never ceases. Also, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned more and more just how wonderful of a woman she is!

    Full disclosure: I went to dinner and drinks with pals for my birthday right after work and didn’t want to drink another beer when I got home! This one is in my fridge and will be enjoyed this weekend 🙂
