    Hey guys, thanks for the review! It was fun to listen to the discussion. I think that the fact that there was so much talk about whether or not it could be called an IPA is a testament to the complexity that the Brett provides. This beer was brewed with the intent of watching the flavor development over the course of several months. We are about 5 months in now and the hops have faded, while the Brett flavors continue to develop. This was a blend of Brett strains (Brett Clausenii, Drie, and Lambicus) and it was hopped with Mandarina Bavaria, Cascade, and a small amount of Citra. It was a one time beer for us and it didn’t have a base beer that is produced on a regular basis. The malt bill and hops were chosen for how they would compliment the Brett. If you enjoyed this, I would stay on the lookout for an upcoming dry hopped sour fermented with a wild yeast strain and a yeast strain known for its intense stone fruit esters. Cheers!

    • Thanks, Weedy! That’s awesome info. Tomorrow’s podcast has us drinking two of the Pinstripe variants. We love what you’re doing. Keep up the good work.
