We found this hike at a roadside turnout in Kootenay National Park. the overgrown trail followed a creek as it wound through the woods. It was apparent that the local bears were the only ones using the trail. When we finally got to the end, all we found was a crooked sign that read "End of Trail". There was no summit, waterfall or view. That day we learned that not every hike is a great one and sometimes you just spend the day stepping over bear scat.
The story behind the name
End of Trail Pale Ale
The End of Trail is our rotating hop series beer. In this edition we used a hops called BRU-1 from Brulotte Farms in Yakima Valley, Washington. This hop has juicy aromas of freshly cut pineapples (tropical), green fruits (melon) and stone fruits that are backed by a soft spice.
