We brewed an IPA base beer with only bittering hops and then dry hopped 4 separate kegs with Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe and El Dorado, respectively. This event was designed, with the hop heads in mind, to allow you to get the true experience of one particular variety of hop and how it contributes flavor to the same base beer. While this is not a true SMASH beer(single malt and single hop), it serves a similar purpose, with the focus being on the dry hop addition. We will be releasing all 4 of these kegs on August 8th and will serve flights of all 4 as a side by side comparison. That same night we will be releasing our IPA with a completely new dry hopping schedule, including our first time use of Simcoe lupulin powder.
Midtown Light was brewed to be the perfect, everyday beer for the Midtown Commons residents. This beer is a Pilsner brewed with Blacklands Malt Silver Star Pilsner malt, Simcoe hops and fermented with Czech Pilsner yeast. Refreshingly dry and finishes with a crisp bitterness.
