I first met Tony, Clay and Melodee, the trio behind the awesome Boneyard Brewing from Bend, Oregon in 2014 at the Brewers dinner after Mikkeller's CBC. We sat next to each other after an amazing two days of serving our beers in Copenhagen. By this point we had hit some amazing wine and laughed and talked a lot about life and beer. A friendship was formed and good times planned!
Roll on 11 months and Tony the Boneyard brewmaster was coming to the UK on his way into Europe. "Let's brew!?!" Oh yes!!
So I asked Tony if he had any dreams of what to brew. Tony said "I like hops!" Well, so do we!
Tony and I got chewing over the malts and hops...a lot of hops!!! And how we attain a kick ass, smooth, dry, sessionable 10% triple IPA?!? Easy right! DIPA and TIPA are really tough brews to nail. To create that ultimate high ABV monster that drinks with easy and finesse is a true art form. Take Vinnie's 'Pliny's' and Tony's 'Notorious TIPA' as examples. Such well considered and brilliantly executed beers.
So it's our pleasure to give you 'Power of the Voodoo' Triple IPA. As Tony explained about Boneyard's Notorious TIPA "Wherever that beer goes, it takes names!"
We feel that at 10% ABV, 'Voodoo' is up there and taking them too.
Watch out, Voodoo's about!!!
