Beer Release: Sweet Nothings on tap now

Remember the “0 IBU IPA”? We just released the second version of this concept. “International bitterness units” or “IBUs” are a measurement of isomerized alpha acids. Alpha acids contribute bitterness to a beer, but they aren’t soluble until you boil them (or get them very hot). For a long time, it was thought that boiling temperatures were absolutely necessary to get IBUs, but it turns out that isn’t necessarily true. In this beer, no amount of hops were boiled, but we steeped a ton of them just after the boil, greatly reducing the bitterness, while contributing tons of hop aroma, which would evaporate during a boil. The result is a soft, very aromatic pale ale. Highlighting Galaxy and Simcoe hops, we refrained from any filtering or finings to maximize the hop aroma. This is one you want to drink fresh. 6.8%, and ready for guzzlin’.
