Sheep Shagger

Colonel Carmichael, an educated and accomplished Scotchman, settled in Lake Mills in 1844. He selected a location at the head of Rock Lake, which he stocked quite largely with sheep, intending to make a sheep farm of the place. He had five hundred sheep driven in from Ohio and shepherds with their dogs and crooks come clear from Scotland. This rich, malty, full-bodied brew with specially roasted complex malts for a complex blend of caramel and toffee flavors is a tribute to Colonel Carmichael.
