Everybody’s Brewing announced this week the release of the latest beer from their Tiny Tank Series, a Double IPA called HoppyAF. It will first be tapped at their White Salmon, WA brewpub on Thursday August 20th, and available on draft throughout the Northwest August 24th. HoppyAF predominantly uses Galaxy and Citra hops, clocking in at 80 IBU’s, and 7.4% ABV. Owner/Brewmaster Doug Ellenberger is extremely pleased with the beer. “We used over 2 lbs. of hops per barrel, and really tried to get the tropical fruitiness from the Galaxy Hops. We used a new hopping technique we have been talking about for a while, and we’re beyond pleased with the result. It gave us the big nose we wanted, and the balance is just right. We are really excited about this one”.
HoppyAF marks the fourth offering from Everybody’s Tiny Tank Series, the brewery’s “experimental” series of beers it started releasing since their expansion has allowed them more free tank space. “We finally have a facility big enough to accommodate our creativity. The Tiny Tank Series has been a great outlet for us to push the limits of craft beer, which is important to us.” said Ellenberger. Past creations from the series include a Hibiscus Sour Ale called Sprinkles, a Double India Pale Lager, and a unique Gose style beer with Coco nibs added.
Supplies of HoppyAF are limited, and the brewery expects to sell out of the beer over the next few weeks. They are still deciding what beer will follow up HoppyAF, but they expect to release the next Tiny Tank beer sometime in the fall.
