It's the first Tuesday of the month, which means it's New Tap Tuesday at The Dugout! For the first New Tap of 2015, we're featuring Sierra Nevada's Wild Hop IPA. Released just last month, this is the first beer released nationwide brewed with wild hops.
From Sierra Nevada:
A few years back, we caught wind of rogue hop heads in the Southwest who began collecting some of the wild hops they found while scrambling down hillsides near their home in New Mexico. These bizarre, multi- headed, native U.S. cones have a flavor like nothing we’ve tasted, and for the first time, we’re showcasing their unusual melon, apricot and citrus aromas and flavors in our beer. Neomexicanus is the literal wild card in our five-bottle Harvest series, which features single hop, fresh hop, wet hop, and wild hop beers.
Happy hour pricing on this unique new IPA all night long!
