Experience the Mangy Moose at any time of the year, and especially now with the release of its Mangy Moose Spicy Marg—a perfect balance of spice, citrus, and sweet that tastes famous, just like the Moose. Smooth, distinct, and fortified with a 55-year history as the Jackson’s top après ski bar, this RTD cocktail is produced in collab with Casper-WY Backwards Distilling and is packaged in four-packs with recyclable pack rings! When a day of adventure calls for a portable legend or an afternoon of relaxing poolside or hammock-happy, get loose and drink the Moose.

Roadhouse Brewing Co.’s series of musically-inspired brews chose Bluegrass this summer with an Americana dynamo, Railroad Earth. As Roadhouse Brewmaster, Max Shafer describes, “The best way I can describe this beer is tropical fruit punch—red fruits, mango, and papaya. Subtle hints of strawberry and coconut but not in an overpowering synthetic sun tan lotion way—shine through along with a bit of passionfruit.” The result is delicious and flavorful and a tribute to what it means to Live Deep. Share this special edition Hazy IPA with those who love any combination of music, summer, and beer!
