Hi! Just a heads up, in case you're new here! We actually have TWO locations. Our Shilshole (Ballard) beer garden is open for pints onsite & beer To-Go all 7 days a week. WOW! Our Western (Downtown) location also offers To-Go beer 7 days a week, plus limited indoor seating on FRI PM - SUN. #themoreyouknow

Big Schmidge

DIPA  |  8% ABV  |  55 IBU

We took a step back and simplified this juicy ding dong. We kept the malt bill basic – Rahr 2 Row & Pilsner – and added one adjunct – Oat Malt. Then, we went all in with everybody’s favorite hop – CITRA. But wait, there’s more! While Citra is our favorite hop, it’s often quite soft and rounded. Sometimes, we think it needs a little bite with help from a sharper hop that’ll brighten it’s profile. Thus, we sprinkled in a tiny amount of Idaho 7 – to the tune of 12% of the entire hop bill. AND GUESS THE FUCK WHAT – IT WORKED! This is still a Citra beer, through and through – but those notes of tangerine, apricot,  yellow peach, and ruby red grapefruit have a little more zing to them. You know what they say – sometimes you just need a schmidge to really go big. People say that. We swear.
