Paddle Hard’s River Rampage

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | Dec. 17, 2022

We’d be lying if we said that Paddle Hard Brewing’s house IPA didn’t have us longing for sweltering temps, neon pool floaties, and lots of glorious sunshine. (Remember sunshine? We hardly do…) But, are we still sipping it in December? You bet. The second in a three-beer series preceded by the Lazy River Rampage Session IPA, this lighter-than-predicted pale hits all the multi-season high notes with a pine-forward nose and a richly-layered palette, thanks to a brew containing no fewer than seven different hop varieties. We’d pair it with something rich—go for the brewery’s Thai’d Up Paddler pizza, or a hot dog for that full summer feeling—though it’s just as delicious on its own. Enjoy River Rampage on tap ($5), by the six-pack, or 32-ounce crowler at Paddle Hard Brewing’s Grayling location, 227 Michigan Avenue. And don’t miss the 27 other guest and in-house taps! (989) 745-6388.
