Jump ahead 14 months and Larry Degreen from Purple Healer is still brewing great beers, but in a new location. Larry recently moved to Danville, PA and he’s not only still brewing great beers like his award winning Rippinator Dopplebock, but he’s added 7 or 8 new beers to his lineup and even expanded his Puppy Hops line up of spent-grain dog biscuits.
Today we enjoyed sampling Larry’s new LDB IPA. This is a mildly hoppy, slightly malty almost British-style IPA that has great body and an noticeable alcohol flavor. It was fun hearing Larry’s story of the development of this beer *and it’s name), and even more fun to sample.
We were also lucky enough to sample some of Larry’s award winning Purple Possum. This is a decidedly fruity & grape-flavored brew with lots of character and lots of flavor. This was Larry’s fall seasonal offering and with the big body & flavor this beer carries, I think it’s a great seasonal offering for fall.
Larry has quite a few great beers so be sure to check out La Fontana Pizzeria in Bloomsburg & the other locations carrying Purple Healer beers.
Thank you to Larry Degreen from Purple Healer Brewing
, Nancy, John, & Joe for yet another fun Friday.
