Guess who's back? Back again? Craig is back. Back again. etc. Yes, a beer from the man himself, Craig. If you don't recall its first appearance, we had this to say: *So, there's a brewer at Mountain Goat called Craig. Craig was tasked to create a beer. He chose to brew a pale ale, using Willamette hops to stand out from the herd. When the time came to tap the beer, it needed a name.

"What shall we call it?" said the Goats. 'How about The Craig?"came the reply. "No. We're not calling it The Craig," said Craig. "Tough. It's The Craig," came the reply.*

This time around it's been beefed up a little or, as The Craig's boss The Dave says: "The 2012 version is a nitrogen-powered English red ale. Brewed with British Crystal malts, and US Willamette & Cascade hops, then carbonated with nitrogen (rather than CO2), it's smooth, rich and mellow. Just like Craig himself. Only Craigier."
