Trapper’s Packs (or pack baskets, Adirondack baskets, hunting baskets) have been around for centuries. Generations of outdoors people have made use of these carefully crafted packs that are the result of the blending of 17th century French explorers and American Indians’ cultures blending. Electric yellow, with a dainty haze. Layers of canteloup, lemon-lime, pungent pine, and lemon balm settle in the aroma. Flavors of strawberry, watermelon, and tropical fruit meet melon, lemongrass, and spruce tips in the wheat forward, medium body. A pithy hop bitterness lingers for a moment so you can think about what you’re sipping. As relaxing as that perfect afternoon in the autumn woods.
