Lake Erie Monster stories are like fish stories. Drink a few of these handcrafted Imperial IPAs and you’re bound to start boasting and weaving wild tales of mythic proportions.Drink more and you might even have visions of South Bay Bessie, the freshwater cryptid or which our Lake Erie Monster is named, lifting her scaly head above the surface of Lake Erie. Or the Cuyahoga River. Or a kiddie pool. Actually, if you see Bessie in a kiddie pool, take it easy. You’ve probably had too many!
