Have a Forrest Fenn at Hansa Brewery…


Next time you’re in Cleveland stop by the Hansa Brewery and order up a glass of Forrest Fenn…

Not kidding…Look HERE!

The brewpub describes it as a “Happy Treasure with notes of grapefruit and pine. A blaze red appearance from the Carmel malts add a sweeter body to the balance. Brewed in the spirit of the west and adventure.”

I spoke with Boris who owns the European style brew pub and he told me they were out of it right this minute but it could come back…  Maybe we should all send Boris a note and request a new batch!!!

You can reach Boris at info@hansabrewery.com

Searchers in the tri-state area could have a meet-up in 2020 at the Hansa and do a few Forrest Fenn’s…

2717 Lorain Ave, in Cleveland…near the world famous Cuyahoga River…

  1. Good luck to the Hansa Brewery. Mr. Fenn has a sandwich and brew named after him. I think it would be nice for a company to name a steamy hot cup of chocolate after him. Now would be a good time.

    • AKB…Hansa sounds a lot like “answer” (pronounced “ansa”). I’m working on creating a margarita named for Forrest…it will have hints of chocolate and Tabasco and pair well with Frito Pie.

      • That’s not true. Not for everyone.

        Plenty of people haven’t found anything yet. I bet those people want to see it. I know I would if I was one of those people.

      • Sally Colorado – Cleveland Brown’s…Hmmmm…how far is Cleveland from Toledo, OH?

        I’ll be happy to do a little user testing on your margarita recipe for you! What are you going to call it? Will you have it ready for the Buffalo Bar in West Yellowstone to serve next Spring?

    • While there, visit the James Garfield Memorial and pay respects to the 2nd great Republican President to be assassinated (1st Lincoln, 3rd McKinley).

    • There HAS GOT TO be room for doubt. Otherwise it wouldn’t be a leap of faith.

      It’d just be another boring old decision made based on facts. Who needs more of that in their life?

      • I agree. Sometimes things are right in front of you . Like you can’t get there from here, but how could that be true? Go in like a lion and out like a lamb. Crazy is as crazy doesn’t? Sometimes you just have to hop off the Merry go round and take that leap of faith. Leaps of faith can be the most direct routes. And, you can look a gift horse in the mouth. Just saying.

  2. I hear rumors that Natasha defected to Frostbite Falls and is living in a Tiny House Commune with a real nut named Rocky and his groundskeeper who goes by the name Bullwinkle. All three have been up to their elbows trying to keep up in their cottage industry of marketing snow globes.

    Hey Barkeep….”one more for the ditch”….hiccup!

  3. It’s where warm waters halt! The Cuyahoga River caught fire years ago. I even remember a Randy Newman song about it. Here’s your first clue. In Cleveland.

  4. IMO, a reference to John Kerrison a YouTube video titled (Me, Them and Forrest Fenn.) It’s a great listen. A very well told story about a Brit and his buddy, searching for the treasure. I would reccomend for sure. The humor is on point, ..and who knows? Maybe a hint in there. I would steer more towards Toledo, but that’s just me. It’s gonna be a long winter, stay safe and warm.

    • Gosh sounds like everybody is celebrating the Holidays already, snow time is hard time here in the Rockies, but TOLEDO? Well Cleveland is Brown country and just 300 miles east of Toledo is Cross Fork, PA, famous because Cross Fork by 1900 had cut down all its trees around it and that city of thousands burned to the ground and never was rebuilt, its sawmill burned 3 times, funny it had major league baseball team, football, and many other facilities in the city. It is in Kettle Creek Valley where The Earl Brown Memorial Turkey Calling contest is held, now turkeys do not come out of Rabbit Holes do they?

      Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow hunters!

      We are like family, us and Forrest, we fight like cats and dogs but let one of us get lost and were all in.


  5. I see the possibility of a road trip in the future. Coreda would be all in because she is the beer drinker in the family! LOL

    • You’re not that far from Cleveland Tom…500 miles???…I hope you can test this Cleveland brewski and let us know what you think..
      Call ahead and make sure they have it on tap before you start the adventure…

  6. I’m not a beer drinker ever since I discovered my Spirit animal is a Wolverine… But, I would buy a six pack of it for my wine fridge 🙂

  7. Lemme tell ya. Thish Fenn brew is really good stuff (hic). I high…. I highly reco…mend it (burp!). Try some…will ya? Zzzzzzzzzzzzz,,,,

  8. Sheer lunacy!

    I don’t know whether the jinx would redound to the drinker or the drunk, but I sure know better than to drink a beer named after anyone who hasn’t yet shuffled off the ol’ mortal coil.

    Have an *Everett Ruess Dry.P.A.* instead – “Dry as dust; for that unquenchable thirst.”

    (patent pending)


  9. And to think; I moved from Mi 4 years ago to Socal…
    So much for having one of those brews with fellow treasure hunters.


  10. A Forrester Fenn Brew, cotainents are pine needles, pine bark, wild flowers, sage, & only a neglegiable amount of turpentine; (this should not effect your ability to find his treasure); unless it is consumed in large enough quantities that might destroy all of your brain cells, lol. Keep away from Dale, at all costs; JK. Have a happy thanksgivin, (dal, & “f”) along with your family, & seacher friends.

  11. Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness. Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be. That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks, for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation, for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war, for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed, for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us. And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions, to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually, to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed, to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord. To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and Us, and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best. Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

    — George Washington

    On the day of thanksgiving, Washington attended services at St. Paul’s Chapel in New York City, and donated beer and food to imprisoned debtors in the city.

    Happy Thanksgiving with Cheers!

  12. The street name is spelled wrong. I grew up on Lorraine ave in Flint. Brings back great memories. If anyone decides to make the trip to Cleveland, do it in the summer and make time to go to Cedar Point in Sandusky. Some of the best Roller Coasters in the world.

  13. Drink with me to days gone by
    To the life that used to be
    At the shrine of Fenn beer, never say die
    Let the beer of friendship never run dry
    Here’s to you, and here’s to me.
