I’m too sexy for my beer… The small batch “Vicki’s Secret IPA” is going on tap in Portland during May. Brewed using “Victoria Secret” hops (yep, that’s the real name!) from Australia along with a few pounds of Huell Melon and Citra hops. And to give this IPA that big hops forward flavor, Larry also dry-hopped it. This piney IPA has notes of citrus and subtle tropical notes. Of course it’s 6.9% ABV.
The Blackberry Experiment is on tap now at Gritty’s in Auburn. This brassy golden beauty comes in at 5%ABV. It was brewed with Mosaic and Cascade hops, and then finished with 40 LBS of Maine blackberries.This creates a subtle blackberry undertone to the ale. Next up is a session IPA that will go on tap at the end of May at Gritty’s in Auburn.
The IPL, India Pale Lager, is going back on tap in late April or early May at Gritty’s in Freeport.

Greg is going with generous quantities of Cascade and Willamette hops in the kettle then dry hopping the brew with Huell Melon hops.
