Just got an email release from the Brewhouse talking about their new beer: Trampled By Hops, a tribute beer for the local band Trampled By Turtles. According to head brewer Dave Hoops, Trampled By Hops is a North Shore style pale ale.
Said Hoops in an email:
"After the last album came out (called "Duluth" by the way), we wanted to give a shout out to them for all they do for our community and for our Brewhouse. Many of the band members play our stage with other groups they are in …
"So the boys named the beer and asked for HOPS."
Hoops said they used a hop new to the Brewhouse called Ahtanum, which has notes of lemon and citrus, with six other unique hops for a very hoppy, not bitter pale ale. Expect it to be brewed a couple times a year. It will be on tap during Hop Dependence, the week of the Fourth of July.
As for TBT, according to their Web site, their next show is the 10,000 Lakes Festival on July 24.
