It’s fermented with Ecuadorian cocoa nibs and a Trappist ale yeast, with an ABV of 9.1% and 31 IBUs. Brewed as a collaboration with Linden Street Brewing as part of The Oakland Beer Drinkers Association Series. This is a very special limited release so be sure to treat yourself while it’s still around.
We have a delicious new beer brewing! It’s a Belgian Style White IPA with 70 IBUs and 7% ABV. Angel Dust is remarkably dank and aromatic with notes of grapefruit,
