North Peak’s ORC

Bottoms Up
Dec. 15, 2018

For the next month or so, North Peak Brewing Company has a great way for you to stay toasty warm on a wintery day. Grab a pint of The ORC, North Peak’s seasonal brown ale, and for a few moments you might even forget that baby, it’s cold outside. The ORC is named for the oats, rye, and chocolate and crystal malts it’s made with, and is as likeable as a golden retriever puppy. It’s a perfect middle-of-the-road ale, showing off with chocolatey and caramel sweetness, and finishing with just a dash of spice from the rye. Not too light, not too dark, everything about it is just right — including its use of hops from our very own neck of the woods. The temperatures may be bitter, but your beer doesn’t have to be. $6 per pint. Find it: North Peak Brewing Company, 400 W. Front St. in Traverse City. (231) 941-7325, www.northpeak.net
