Any proper exclamation of greatness deserves a proper reference to mythology. And Ron Burgundy. In the case of this first-time bottled brew poised for statewide distribution this week, the name itself speaks volumes: Beard of Zeus!
Beard of Zeus (4.5% ABV, 70 IBU) is an India Pale Lager brewed with bitter orange peel and exclusively Zeus hops. The wet green, dank aromatics of the Zeus hops are enhanced by the subtle sweetness of the orange peel. Pleasant resiny hop essence immediately dominates the flavor profile before transitioning to a bold bitterness amplified by the light, clean lager finish.
Like any of our specialty releases, you’ll be wise to look for this instant classic sooner rather than later. Only 660 cases are being distributed throughout Michigan, so the time to get your hands on Beard of Zeus is now.
