Holy Cowbell India Stout
The Bollywood of beers. Beavertown wanted to build a recipe which really pushed the love affair between dark malts and hops. So they designed the brew around allowing the hops to sing on top of a dark malt bomb. The aim was to brew an almost dark chocolate-like base beer and then pile on with the tropics of summit and centennial hops, lifting the waves of smooth chocolate off the tongue. Basically lots and lots of hops are added in their masses at the end of the boil and then in dry hop, to extract maximal hop flavour and aroma!

A contradiction in terms. A Black India Pale Ale?! The concept Beavertown came up with revolved around the old chewy sweets ‘Black Jacks & Fruit Salads’. They wanted to take a big, fat IPA and lace it with under- tones of slight roast and aniseed and blend with the huge tropical aromas of Pacific West coast hops. The beer also gained a hint of roast by using Carafa malts from Germany. They give Black Betty the dark colour and a touch of roast but minimal bitterness, thus letting the hops fly and fly!
