Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the Beer of the Week! This week, I’m up in the mountains, away from football, radio and cell phones (it’s heaven), so I wasn’t able to make my appearance on Arrowhead Pride Radio on 610 Sports Radio (Thursday evenings from 6-7 p.m. Arrowhead Time).
However, that hasn’t stopped me from presenting you with this week’s Beer of the Week: Avery Brewing Co Hog Heaven!
Coming out of Boulder, Colorado, Avery Brewing Co Hog Heaven is a 9.2% Imperial Red IPA with a complex caramel malt body coupled with strong Columbus bittering hops and a ton of Columbus dry hops. This makes for an aggressive, yet complex beer that has a big hop nose. It’s not for the faint of heart, and certainly not for non-hop lovers.
