Super Hoppy Holidays 2017

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And in order to ensure that your holidays are some of the hoppiest ever, we made our Super Hoppy Holidays package even hoppier this year with SIX varieties! Keep an eye out for it on store shelves starting November 1st and seize the hopportunity to grab one (or 2 or 3) before they’re gone. We look forward to celebrating the holidays with you. On behalf of all of us here at Short’s Brewing Company, we wish you a Super Hoppy Holiday and Happy New Beers!  

Aww Jeah: Aww Jeah (10.4% ABV – 95 IBU) is a Double American India Pale Ale with a dark orange hue and big hop aromas. Sweet malt collides with an array of hop flavors ranging from sticky fruit to pine in this brew. Aww Jeah shifts towards a finish that is sharp and bitter.



Batch 5000: Batch 5000 (14.6% ABV – 75 IBU) is a big-bodied, Triple American India Pale Ale with a sizable palate coating sweetness. Delicious flavors and aromas of pineapple and orange are complemented by an awesome piney hop bitterness that leads into a warming finish.



Hellacious Rock: Hellacious Rock (8.7% ABV – 70 IBU) is a Double American India Pale Ale with bold floral hop aromas of citrus peel and pine.  A sizable malt sweetness allows for a balanced presentation of abundant hop flavors, most notably those of sharp grapefruit and fruity berries.  The finish is mostly clean with a perfect resiny bitterness, that lingers, but doesn’t overwhelm the palate.



Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster: Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster (10.2.% ABV – 88 IBU) is a double Belgian IPA brewed with Australian Galaxy hops. The nose is an impressive dank blend of citrus aromas reminiscent of guava and lemons, very green and fresh with subtle Belgian yeast esters. An intense clean bitterness dominates the flavor profile with little malt character to compete with. A slight, fruity yeast sweetness is noticeable in the finish alongside a resounding bitterness.


Slurm Lord: Slurm Lord (7.7% ABV – 17 IBU) is a double New England style India Pale Ale brewed with oats and a blend of Citra, Azacca, Amarillo, Galaxy, and Mosaic hops. We’re excited to say that the brewing of Slurm Lord employs the largest dry hop to date in SBC history! Deep orange in color with a permanent haze and a minimal head, a glass of Slurm Lord resembles a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. Aromas of dank passion fruit, mango, and pineapple are accompanied by bold flavors of citrus. This medium-bodied India Pale Ale is incredibly juicy from start to finish. A final sip leads into a slight, warming bitterness.

Stache Bender: Stache Bender (10.4% – 77 IBU) is a bright orange Double American India Pale Ale with explosive aromas of tangerine, pineapple, and grapefruit. The taste is a celebration of citrus hop flavors and fruit zest. Citrus flavors fuse with a slight malty sweetness before a building bitterness resonates into a dry and warming finish.
