Got Hops?

Posted on Feb 7, 2009 in Our Beer

We do. Lots of them. The 2008 crop is in to our supplier in January, and as a result, I’ve been experiencing hop maddness…or perhaps its just that I am a hophead. A plethora of hoppy beer brewed the last few weeks is going to be hitting the shelf and tap soon.

On draught this weekend at American Flatbread in Waitsfield and on the shelf at the Warren Store, you’ll find the Fistful-O-Hop IPA. It should be available in bottles thru the coming week. Down at the Pitcher Inn, Big Hapi India Black Ale (IBA) is on tap. The usual offerings of Maple Nipple Ale at the Common Man and our Hoptoberfest style Porch Pint at the Village Porch. At Mad River Glen, look for the return of Hopzilla Double IPA, likely today (when the Nipple is licked).
Looking ahead, we are wicked psyched to “in the bracket” in the National IPA Championship, organized by Brewing News. Check out the details by clicking the link above or here.

A brand-new IPA is part of this competition – “Knock-Yer-Hops-Off” IPA. It is loaded with high alpha US grown Cascade, Centennial, Magnum, and more. Rings in at over 100 IBU, 6.5% Alc./Vol. and a solid malty body to balance the pucker factor. If you are drooling now, mark your calendar for Sunday, February 15th, when I’ll be at the Warren Store from 1-4 pm, offering samples of KYHO IPA and bottles for sale, along with other TBA liquids. Check back here in another week, I’ll have more details on the tasting posted. Salut!
