Last year's FRESH FEST was such a hit that they're bringing it back on August 10 (Click here for tickets) and we're proud to be a part of it again. Once again, we've partnered with festival co-founder, MIKE POTTER from BLACK BREW CULTURE to make a new version of last year's Brut IPA: For The Culture 2.0!
For this light-bodied, champagne-like, hop forward style of beer, we went Imperial this time... by bumping up the Pilsner Malt (raising the abv to 9.1%), and upping the late addition hops from last year's 3.5lbs per barrel to a borderline ridiculous rate of 5.1lbs per barrel. We stuck with the same three varieties of Nelson Sauvin, Hallertau Blanv, and Idaho Seven hops, which just burst tropical fruit and white wine like notes... again, just perfect for this style. Can you tell we're excited about this one???
But best of all, you don't have to wait till FRESH FEST in August to get this beer. We're releasing it in cans and draft at the FRESH FEST SILENT DISCO preview event at the Ace Hotel on FRIDAY, MAY 17. Click here for tickets and to learn more; we'll see you there!
