Absurdly Good. Our Belgian IPA hits the taps on Thursday, May 12th at 11:30am.

What do you get when you marry a Belgian tripel & an American IPA? Pure madness!

In regards to crafting beer, Belgian brewers have been known to toss the rulebook out the window. Using open fermentation vessels, allowing their beers to ferment at highly elevated temperatures, & blending three-year old batches with new batches are just a few of the non-traditional tactics they regularly practice. American brewers are also outliers among the traditional beer community. Our “bigger is better” motto & our sense of individuality & constant thrive towards success has undoubtedly influenced our brewing practices. Thus, as a result Imperial stouts, Imperial IPAs, & big, bold bourbon barrel-aged beers saturate our market. The American “bigger is better” mindset translates to “the more hops & the more booze the better” in the beer industry.

What if you take two styles from two cultures that like to push the envelope regarding brewing practices & guidelines? The result is Absurdity. Absurdity is our Belgian IPA: a Belgian-style tripel crossed with an American IPA. This hybrid is a beautifully harmonized union of malt, hops, & yeast. An intriguing aroma of fresh tangerine, lime, & spice invite you to explore the depths of this mad masterpiece. Its complexity unravels as a delicate hop bitterness transcends into a perfect marriage of citrus hop & bready malt flavors. The finish is smooth & dry with a hint of spice. A coordinated collision of ingredients resulting in beautiful absurdity. It’s delicious delirium.
