It has been a minute since my last post. Yes, I have been in hibernation...let's just say it has been an eventful year thus far. With that being said, I needed an amazing beer to be my first post after hiding for 7 long months. As I walked down the aisle of my local Total Wine something catches my attention at the corner of my eye.
As I turn I am greeted by the "Nimble Giant". A Double IPA created by Tröegs Independent Brewing based out of Hershey, PA. This Double IPA will take your tastebuds on a roller coaster ride to paradise. Packed with tropical flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, and honeysuckle, this IPA does not disappoint. This beer is perfect on a hot summer day, after a long day of work, or just hanging out with your crew. But hurry and grab this beer before time runs out for this beer only comes around once a year. Yes, sad I know...but it is just something to look forward to every year.
Food pairings with this giant beer include: bone-in pork chops, miso salmon, rich cheeses, and carrot cake. Although, this beer is not made for the faint of heart for it contains 9% ABV (my kind of beer personally). It is deep orange in color and has the super power to turn a so - so day into a great one.
Currently this amazing brewery distributes to the following states: Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington D.C.
If you live in any of those states, you have lucked out! For those of you who don't, I say it is worth the trip out to the brewery to try their delicious beer. While summer is still in full force, I suggest you #findthegiant and have yourself a Nimble Giant Double IPA. It is hands down the beer of the summer.
