What Makes A Good Beer, Great? | Buzzword IPA

We don’t know. We’re not in the industry.

Superlative Dedication | Triple Dog Dare

We know you never back down. When a warning says “don’t try this at home” there’s a chance you’ve already done it. It’s honestly getting a bit out of hand, but we respect the dedication. This triple IPA is all about that dedication, so we made it in collaboration with Dog Island Brewing because it takes all the power we have to make a Triple Dog Dare for the person who never backs down.
