Classic Mistake For The Young Player
They say experience is everything. A lesson gained is a lesson learned. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Where are we going with this? Well, it took us old farts quite a few years to really figure out how to use, let alone source, some of our favorite New Zealand hops. We used to not have a choice in our lots, and now we have THE CHOICEST – like the Motueka and Nelson Sauvin in this beer, which came from a new farm called Nelson Lakes, located a couple hours South of the traditional hop growing region. And we used to have no friends over there, but now we have…1 friend. So of course, we hashed out the recipe with our pals at Garage Project Brewing, and landed on a base of 2 Row, Pils & Wheat to anchor a soft, tropical, crushable pale ale. So yeah, no more mistakes for us. We are no longer young players.
