First & Foremost! DENOGGINIZER DIPA NOW IN 22s! But... we have to say that we've had a hard time keeping bombers of the infamous Denogginizer Double IPA in stock, since we started bottling it in late June. More is now in the fermenter and will be bottled before the end of the month.
SPECIALS & SEASONALS BEERS THIS MONTH:
DRAKE'S HOPOCALYPSE ALE – 9.3% ABV, 100+ IBUs - This Liquid Revelation is a deep orange monster that is loosely filtered to keep the integrity and faith of the malt & hops intact. Equal amounts of American two-row malt and English pale malt are combined with Vienna and Rye malts, then balanced with Cascade, Simcoe and Chinook hops for flavor. We then dry hop it with additional Cascade, Simcoe, and Chinook hops. Enjoy the massive aromatic Revelation and prophetic flavor of this beer now and forever after.
DRAKE'S BASS AKWARDS IPA - 7% a.b.v - Our Bass Akwards IPA is a hop forward IPA with huge citrus & piney characters. The nose is reminicent of fresh cut grass, pine, and citrus from the hop resins but balanced off with a light malt flavor. A base malt of American two row barley is combined with Caramalt to makeup the grain bill. The original recipe called for Simcoe (S) Saaz (S) and Amarillo (A) for the bittering Hops, and Simcoe (S) Spalt (S) and Amarillo (A) for the flavoring and aromatic hops. One of the brewers commented on the fact that the bittering & flavoring hops they used both spelled "ass" backwards... and the name of this beer was born- Bass Akwards IPA.
AROMA PRIETA IPA - 6.5% a.b.v. (6.9 on the Richter Scale) - This liquid temblor is an agressively hopped IPA that is the second in our "World Series of Hops" program. (The first was Aroma Coma in 2009.) Using a basemalt of Two-Row Barley, Rye, Wheat, Crystal, Pilsen & Honey Malts, we are able to achieve a lighter body than our regular IPA but one with a larger magnitude of hop aroma & bitterness. 32 lbs of hops (German Magnum, CTZ, Citra, Chinook & Centennial) will shake your taste buds for a minimum of 10-15 seconds! The pine, citrus & floral aromatics then settle down for a smooth & gentle finish.
These beers can be found at a few of our select East Bay accounts (ABC laws won't let us post where... but, send us an email and we can "legally" give you the info!) Thanks for reading!
