Gigantic Brewing is holding a Ginormous Beer Party on Thursday night, June 29that Toronado. Take a look at the poster attached. We will be raffling of some Gigantic swag and 2 tickets to Sierra Nevada Beer Camp the next day.

We plan to pour:

Tiny Empire ISA
Ridiculously citrusy and tropical ISA. Made with Citra, Mosaic, Crystal, Cascade and Simcoe.

The City Never Sleeps
Imperial Black Saison

Gigantic IPA
Our flagship citrusy, tropical and eminently drinkable IPA.

We are starting a new program with our Ginormous Imperial IPA. We are going to be releasing a new version of Ginormous every 7 weeks, with each iteration being brewed with a new hop bill. We will be using some of the cool new hops - African Queen, Southern Aroma, Calista, and experimentals - and some of the favorites - Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe, Crystal, Nelson, Galaxy.


Ginormous MK1
Featured Hop: African Queen
ABV: 8.8%

The first release in the new Ginormous program features the African Queen hop from South Africa. African Queen, formerly known as Experimental Hop 98J17/63, are a South African hop variety that is incredibly tropical and contributes strong citrus, stone fruit, black currant, and gooseberry notes

MK1 also includes: Cascade, Crystal, Eureka, Mosaic, Nugget and Simcoe hops

Description: In the search for a hoppier, better equipped Ginormous we are launching an ever-changing series of Ginormous Imperial IPAs developed at our secret testing facility deep in S.E. Portland. This first one features the beguiling and beautiful African Queen hop.
