Many Hands Wet Hopped Imperial Pale Ale is a 7.3% abv strong ale that was brewed in late August at the Boxing Rock facility in Shelburne during a visit by Bridge brewer Josh Harbin, who also grew the hops. The resulting beer is described as follows:
We grew the hops, we picked the hops, we brewed a delcious harvest ale. 100% Vienna malt and 110 lbs of wet hops from Lazy Acres of the Gasperau Valley (Chinook, Cascade & Williamette). Tasting notes: biscuit, toffee, grapefruit, peach. Dry finish and lingering hop resin, the hallmark of a great wet hopped beer. Restrained and balanced, this wet hopped beer lets the hops shine without being overly bitter.
Many Hands is available now while supplies last in growlers at both brewery’s retail shops and several farmers’ markets where Boxing Rock vends, as well as on tap at The Brooklyn Warehouse in Halifax.
