Hermit Thrush "SDIPA" Sour Double IPA - Brattleboro, VT
New England Style Sour Double India Pale Ale with wheat and oats. Notes of tropical citrus and stone fruit. All local hops (Rakau and Teamaker) come from just down the road at Four Star Farms. Soured with native lactobacilli.
Friendship, big ideas, and just a pinch of brewing skills (okay, more like a barrelful) all lead to the sour-specific brainchild of Christophe Gagné and Avery Schwenk. At Hermit Thrush Brewery, they are dedicated to concocting the best New American Sours they can dream up — and they aren’t afraid to go old-school with their style. Hermit Thrush combine environmentally sustainable practices (like wood pellet boilers) with age-old brewing processes and a harvest of locally grown ingredients. The end result? A pucker-inducing punch to the tastebuds, and barely a dent on the planet.
