The name. The mountain. Ingalls is situated at the end of the Teanaway river road rising out of headlight basin just south of Mt. Stuart. It’s officially a trio of peaks cleverly named as East, South, and North Ingalls. Each peak offers a different degree of difficulty with the S peak being a scramble and the N and E requiring some easy-moderate rock climbing. As such, it is a great location for everyone, with headlight basin being a gorgeous day hike / camping excursion in the shadow of Ingalls and Mt Stuart, and the rest of the Stuart Range farther north. Ingalls offers some fun exploring opportunities from casual wandering to technical rock.
The Beer. Such a popular beer last year, we had to bring Ingalls back. Ingalls ginger is a ginger ale, but not one for the kids. Ingalls features ginger flavor and aroma on top of a backbone that is best described as a pale. The just-above-subtle ginger flavor is backed by a light hop bitterness (with the ginger contributing a little as well), with some residual sweetness and mouth feel from the large portion of wheat used in the grain bill. A late portion of cascade hops complement the ginger aroma with a nice citrus counterpart. A great refreshing beer that will surely be a hit for the ginger lovers and even for (most of the) ginger doubters.
