Beer Description

Collaboration with Great Leap Brewing (China) ~
When our good friends from Beijing, China visited us, we of course had to brew a collaboration! Putting our heads together we brewed an IPA with honey, sichuan peppercorns, and Styrian Wolf hops. The peppercorns were brought over from Beijing and add an incredible fruity, eucalyptus flavor that we really dig!
Last March, we visited their first brewery located in the Beijing hutongs, which are alleys and streets formed by the traditional courtyards of Beijing. After many of their delicious beers, one of us happened to get a spontaneous haircut (as one does, right?!).
It’s the tradition of Great Leap Brewery to give their beers a name in English and a name in Chinese. The Chinese name for this beer is pronounced “long tai tou”, which has a literal meaning of “dragon looking up” but is the name for the traditional haircut that you get in China for Chinese New Year.
All backstory aside – it’s a tasty beer and we’re really thankful that our friends introduced us to some exciting ingredients.
