About a year ago, Green Flash Brewing “acquired’ Alpine Beer Co., in a deal that has seen Alpine’s beers brewed and distributed through Green Flash. This acquisition is a craft acquiring craft move, instead of a big brewery buying out the smaller one.
Enter Green Flash Hand Shake IPA. A co-brew, born out of the friendship and business relationship of the two breweries. If you know the duo, then you already know the beer has to be a hoppy one.
Hand Hake IPA is a commemorative collaboration beer brewed to celebrate the one year anniversary of the Green Flash and Alpine Brewing Company union. Brewmasters Pat and Shawn Mcilhenney and Chuck Silva combined peers to create an IPA worth of sharing with good friends. Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra, and El Dorado hops create a fresh, orange, peppery flavor with an earthy bitter finish. So delicious, let’s toast to a beautiful friendship.
Green Flash Hand Shake IPA is a 22 ounce bottle offering, not yet announced by the brewery.
Hops: Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra, El Dorado
