|Northern Brewer's New Movember Kit: Mustache Envy|

What do meticulously-manicured mustaches, decadent Belgian Stouts and the sustainability of manhood all have in common?
The answer—Northern Brewer. As the premier retail store in the Midwest for home brewing/winemaking equipment and supplies, Northern Brewer is an integral part of Milwaukee’s diverse yet connected community. For this reason, the passionate folks at Northern Brewer are donating $5 (during the month of November) from every purchase of their limited-time-only Mustache Envy Belgian Stout homebrew beer kit to Movember, “the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health.” The month-long endeavor challenges men of any hair-growing ability to step up to the mirror and grow one for the team to raise money for men’s health programs, including prostate and testicular cancer research.
November 1st marks the start of Movember, so now is the time to prep those upper-lip follicles in anticipation of your facial ode to manhood. And while you’re waiting for that epic bristly behemoth to grow, run to Northern Brewer to get your Mustache Envy Belgian Stout kit.
“Covered in the fine-laced hairs of a khaki-colored head lies this jet black, terribly handsome stout. A tangle of Belgian yeast dominates the nose, intertwining fruity esters and restrained phenolics. Mere whiskers of hop bitterness balance assertive roasted malt character. Its thick body and wooly mouthfeel warm the cheeks with substantial alcohol. Moderate effervescence combs through an oaky finish for a dense, distinguished, well-groomed pint.”
This is a beer kit that will knock your argyle socks off and will make you proud to have donated to such a mutually advantageous cause. So go all ye men—grow, groom, brew, drink and be hairy.
Northern Brewer is headquartered in St Paul, MN with retail locations in St Paul, MN; Minneapolis, MN and Milwaukee, WI. Check out their selection of brewing equipment, ingredients/kits and supplies at www.northernbrewer.com or stop into one of their retail locations.
