Gustav Dose spent the early parts of his life stomping around the gardens of Taiwan and Japan. As he grew up, his travels took him to all the brewing sites around the world, learning the techniques of each culture and what made their beer unique. Eventually settling down, Gustav decided to land in Bozeman, Montana. Once the dust cleared, it was time to set up his own brewery, and take what he’d learned to the next level. Relying on ancient traditions and the drive to build a brewery backed by living cultures, Gustav crafts new discoveries from ancient roots. Forming a crew, Mountains Walking emerged with respect to the harmony needed to create amazing beers. More than two dozen beers now come out of the unique genius of Dose and the hard work of his crew. Here, Friend is a blonde ale with hoppy character and big, punchy tropical fruit notes. Like a cream ale and an IPA slammed their genetic material together. Serves well at 8°C and can cellar for three to six months.


Pours a light yellow with a slightly green tint and clear body. Medium carbonation and a frothy, bubbly head out of the can that eases off to a thin layer on top.


A big hit of muddled tropical fruit on top that resolves to a clear note of oranges with some deep sniffing. The hops come across as grassy and green on the nose.


The hops come in stronger than the nose would ever have suggested, and they’re matched with the bitterness from the orange rind, resulting in a blonde ale that leans more toward the taste you’d expect from an IPA. As the beer warms on the tongue you’ll get more of the fruit, but overall this is a sharp, snappy ale with a quick finish.


Spicy fried chicken with poutine and maybe a biscuit somewhere on the side.
