This week we have 2 tasty craft beers new to the Couch for your New Brew Thursday: an IPA from a rotating hop series, and an authentically brewed Bavarian-style Hefeweizen.
Firestone Walker — Luponic Distortion: Revolution No. 006
IPA – American • 5.9% ABV • 59 IBU • Paso Robles, CA
Luponic Distortion Revolution No. 006 is the first- ever West Coast production beer to focus on hops grown in the Great Lakes State. “This beer showcases what happens when you take two familiar Northwest hop varieties and grow them 2,000 miles to the east,” says Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “The typical piney, dank attributes of these hops are transformed into something much brighter, with a racy citrus quality that adds yet another new layer to the lore of Luponic Distortion.”
King Harbor — South Bayern
Bavarian Style Hefeweizen • 5.2% ABV • Redondo Beach, CA
A nod to head brewer Phil McDaniel’s training in Munich, Germany, this true to style, unfiltered Bavarian Hefeweizen is brewed with 100% German ingredients giving it a light, refreshing body with subtle clove and banana character.
