Breakthrough in the Green Room

IPA with Experimental Hops Yes, we get a little obscure with this whole “name the beer” thing sometimes. When you release a new beer every couple of weeks, it honestly gets challenging to come up with consistently cool names. Trust me. Break Through in the Grey Room is a collection of experimental audio recordings by the author and artist William S. Burroughs, and follows his cut-up method of writing and recording and then literally cutting written lines or recorded tape into fragments, and piecing them back together. The resulting soundscape is, to be honest, not for everyone. But then, that was never Burroughs’ intent. [wpex more="Read more" less="Read less"] Back to the BEER – You are wondering what experimental cut-up collages have to do with beer, weren’t you? And aren’t hops green not grey? IPA’s aren’t experimental, are they? No, and hops as an ingredient aren’t anything new. What IS experimental is the varietal of hop in this beer. Fresh from the breeding program in the Pacific Northwest, this beer is brewed with 100% HBC342. This is a newly bred hop varietal that has not been grown in significant enough quantity to be released to the greater brewing world. Instead, just a tiny bit is grown and harvested and sent to brewers to play with, in order to eventually provide feedback to growers and breeders regarding the continued development new hop varieties. Even our beloved Cascade and Centennial had to come from somewhere, and that somewhere is this “proving ground” of hop farms and brewers. So forgive us the oblique beatnik reference and delve into a brand new hop experience, one of grassy and citrusy hops accented by a very unique, subtle fruitiness. Peachy? Watermelon? Whatever you taste, we want to know so shoot us an email or post on our Facebook page. If you don’t, you’ll probably never taste this hop again! Teardrop...$5.75 Pitcher...$21 Tower...$36 [/wpex]
