Championship Bout Hopshell vs. Wooden Teeth!

  • Unfortunately, missteps and injuries took both brews off the court at times during this match!  Will this controversy cloud the crown?  This commentator is of the opinion, “Absolutely Not.”  Although brew sales did lag behind these powerhouses usual numbers.  And although the IPA was out of commission for slightly longer than the Lager, the people’s choice is definitive with Wooden Teeth getting 64% from North’s quaffers & 54% from South’s hopheads. Final Score 73-57 And so … your 2024 champion …

Hoppy Mexican Lager w/ Smoked salt

OG 11.3°P / IBU 33 / ABV 5.15
In the heart of the New Mexican desert, three brewing banditos —Turtle Mountain Brewing Company, Proximity Malting, and Indie Hops—united their skills and embarked on a daring quest.
A plethora of hop flavors: Meyer lemon, boysenberry, spearmint, sassafras, sweet-tart, and pineapple, are lassoed by a touch of salinity evoking the in-famous tradition of salting Mexican export beers. The result is a dry lager that opens its flower to you, capturing the spirit of the desert sky above in every sip.
So little cowboy, join the 3 Amigos on their flavor-filled adventure, and pledge along with us, Wherever there is thirst, you will find us. Wherever there is camraderie, we’ll be there. Wherever … line … wherever craft brew is threatened, you will find, the Three Amigos!
