Today’s beer was the first-ever taste I got of BlackStack. And, seeing as their brews rarely leave the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, it’ll probably be your first taste too!
So, get excited. And I mean, REALLY excited. This family-run brewery has a massive local following and an Untappd score that’s higher than Midwest giants like 3 Floyds, Founders, and Bell’s. And they did it all in less than three years!
If that’s not enough to get your craft-sense tingling, just wait ‘til you see what’s in today’s hopbomb.
In addition to copious amounts of Citra and Triumph Hops, this NE Double IPA features what the brewers call “an a**load” of Sabro AND Sabro Cryo hop.
It figures that BlackStack named this 8.2% ABV beauty Mommy Dearest — I can see someone picking up a wire hanger to guard their last cans!
We don’t know when we’ll get our hands on another IPA with this hop list, and we doubt it’ll be as expertly-crafted as today’s BlackStack creation. So, stock up on this rare gem and hoard it carefully.
