We’re going on three years now, and we’ve never served anything by the Pacific Northwest craft brewing pioneers at RedHook Brewing.
But we are now!
Behold! RedHook’s Long Hammer IPA, with its 6.2 percent ABV and its 16 ounces, is a keeper.
It’s hoppy, but not too hoppy—dry-hopped, actually, giving it a pleasant piney punch—bitter, but not too bitter, and it’s got a bright, poppy finish.
Mostly though, it’s easily drinkable and pairs nicely with smoked meats.
Pair one with some brisket, some macaroni and cheese and our homemade celery salted-slaw.
