We teamed up with a San Diego favorite of ours – Pizza Port, for a Day One of epic preportions. When we first talked we wanted the label to be an homage to Thrilla the Gorilla – whom many of you may remember from T&C Surf designs. We were even more excited when we reached out to Thrilla’s creator, Steve Nazar and he offered to create a brand new character for us. And with “The Chicken” being such a big thing in San Diego, Surfin’ Bird was born.
This Double IPA is based on a hop cocktail we are really in love with (we brewed a test batch in San Clemente), Citra, Loral, and Idaho 7. It’s all lemon cream, stone fruit, and some tropical stuff going on with a light undercurrent of dankness.
