Hot Thoup!

Limited, Draft Only
Original Release Date: 

Hot Thoup! is a brew inspired by Sam’s nephew, who, when tasked with trying to help name the family dog, was emphatic about the name “Hot Thoup!”  We set out to create a strongly culinary influenced ale, and took a whopping load of carrot juice and generous amount of pureed ginger root and added those to an imperial pale ale base recipe, which included Pale, Maris Otter, and Crystal malts with raw sugar and lactose.  Saaz and Willamette hops add subtle herbal notes.  The earthy graininess of the malt and sweetness of the carrot juice along with the spice from the ginger come together to create one healthy tasting brew.  In true soupy fashion, we decided to take the first portion of Hot Thoup! and serve it both warm and still (uncarbonated), much like a mulled wine.  Each glass will be garnished with a carrot stick. When enjoyed warm, the sweetness of the carrot juice comes through along with spicy ginger and a warming toddy-like alcohol burn.  This one would be a great pairing with the hummus plate and lighter dishes, but might be best enjoyed as a starter to your meal!

Hot Thoup! will be tapped on Friday, August 31, 2012 and it'll be available as long as it lasts.

Due to limited availability, our Brewpub Exclusive beers are not available in growlers.
