Throughout history, as well in our own lives, we all encounter a host of seemingly terrible ideas that lead to a road unknown. For example, leaving a well-paying desk job to become a brewer, or being one of the first breweries to put craft beer in a can, or brewing a beer with watermelons! Ok that last one was actually a great idea… But with every bad decision there is a risk and sometimes an incredible reward, which brings us to our newest beer, A Terrible Idea Hazy IPA.
In collaboration with our local Bay Area friends at Fieldwork Brewing (who might know a little about hops in beers) we bring you a hop-forward, Hazy IPA . Crack open a can and you’re instantly hit with a floral, dank and piney aroma. At first sip, you’re lulled into delicate malt clouds, then brace yourself for a MAMMOTH dry hop charge - 4 pounds of hops per barrel to be exact (which is twice our typical rate!) – and juicy notes of peach, orange, mango and pineapple.
A Terrible Idea is making its grand debut at 21st Amendment’s AugustFest anniversary party on Saturday, August 18th. The beer is being tapped at 3pm and 6-packs (to-go) will be available too. Following the release, the Brewmasters from both breweries will take this terrible show on the road with A Terrible Idea Tour of launch events in the following locations:
