New beer for the new year

Posted on Jan 10, 2009 in Our Beer

WOW! Your taste buds might be scared (or scorched) as HOPZILLA has arrived. Lawson’s latest release is a hop monster of a double IPA and this is the first time this recipe has been brewed for sale. HOPZILLA is loaded with over 4 lbs of hops per barrel and is dry hopped with Cascade. The first keg went on tap today at Mad River Glen, and its going fast. Look for bottles to appear in the Warren Store some time early next week. In the meantime, a fresh round of Red Spruce Bitter is on the shelf there as of today.

I’ve been brewing double batches since the new year, trying to re-stock after the holiday craziness, but still trying to catch up. Our friends at American Flatbread and the Pitcher Inn have to wait until next week before the first batch of Fistful-O-Hop IPA of the new year arrives, so they are all out this weekend. Around town, Maple Nipple bottles are available at the Common Man, and the Porch Pint on tap down in Rochester at the Village Porch.
Looks like an artic freeze is settling in…so grab a strong one and get close to the woodstove. Cheers!
