I’ve been drinking craft beer long enough to remember the very beginning of Southern Tier Brewing. Back in 2005 we started to see a few beers like Phin & Matt’s Extraordinary Ale, and Southern Tier IPA coming out of the Lakewood, NY brewery. These were good beers, but it wasn’t until we started to see the creative masterpieces like Crème Brulee, Choklat and Pumking, that Southern Tier really marched onto the craft beer scene.
Today we sampled Southern Tier 2XIPA. There is very little information to be found about 2XIPA, so it was fun to sample the beer and try to pick out the ingredients of the brew. I’m a big fan of 2xIPA, so it was even more exciting to hear that we’ll likely see more of it with the recent installation of the new bottling line @ Southern Tier.
2XIPA is a great hoppy beer so be sure to get out and check it out for yourself. Southern Tier also makes a WIDE variety of other ales and lagers like Choklat, Pumking, Jah*va, Crème Brule, Krampus, Harvest, Unearthly, Gemini and Cuvee, and each one is unique and tasty!
to John, Nancy, Joe & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.
