Sierra Nevada Hoptimum IPA

Thomas Creek Up The Creek Extreme IPA

Thomas-Creek-Up-The-Creek-Extreme-IPAFrom the Brewer – “Up The Creek is mashed in at a low temperature to increase the amount of fermentable sugars while reducing residual sweetness.

Food: The strong, breathtakingly hoppy echelons of this beer are really a meal in their own right. Entrees paired here should be toned down against this bold brew, selections can include smoked beef brisket, grilled lamb, Southern chicken-fried steak.

Cheese: Pair with sharp and rich American artisanal blue cheese varieties.

Victory Hop Wallop – A Very Hoppy Ale

Victory-Hop-WallopHorace ‘Hop’ Wallop headed West a broken man. For in the City of Blues a Miss LuLu Belle Lager had left him thirsting for more. Drawn by wild tales of riches to be had in the gold mines, Hop pressed on westward. His last nickel spent on a prospecting pan, Hop’s hunger got the best of him. Two fistfuls of barley and three of some wild and wayward hops tossed in a pan with some clear water was to be his meal. But sleep overcame him and he later awoke to a bubbling, cacophonous concoction. Overjoyed with the beautiful ale that he had made, Hop realized the secret of the green-gold that he had discovered in those fresh hops. Celebrated far and wide, Hop Wallop lives on in this vivid ale with his words, “hoppiness is happiness.”

Great with burgers, BBQ and hard cheeses.
