Making a very limited appearance just in time for the holidays, one of our favorite beers, The Liberator is now on store shelves, statewide. First brewed as a 30th birthday present for Joe Short and named in honor of the Short’s employees who carry out our company’s mission statement as “Beer Liberators,” this brew holds a special place in our hearts.
The Liberator (8% ABV, 116 IBU) employs a sizable malt bill and a crazy amount of hops (added to the boil every 4 minutes, for 120 minutes). Fruity, floral, and piney hop flavors penetrate throughout the caramelized malt profile. The Liberator is a well-balanced, full bodied brew that has a bitter finish due to the post fermentation addition of lemon and orange zest.
So skip the milk and treat Santa to something truly special tonight. We promise, this double IPA is sure to warm him from head to toe!
