Cue the dad farts and man tits. Dogfish Head Brewery has announced that their ‘Hoo Lawd’ beer will be the Hoppiest commercial beer available, clocking in at 658 IBU’s.
Generally, an IPA clocks in around 40-69 IBU’s, so basically what you have here is a beer that’s going to knock your fucking dick off all while giving you some rank as fuck brea
The latest release clocks in at 658 IBUS (international bittering units), while the average IPA lands somewhere between 40-60 IBUS. The new beer, named Hoo Lawd, has apparently received scientific confirmation and documentation from two independent labs that it is, in fact, the hoppiest commercial beer ever brewed.
Sam Calagione and brewmaster Tim Hawn worked with Yakima Chief-Hopunion, a global hop supplier, to create the dark IPA using hops varietals like Alpha Beast, Simcoe, Warrior and Amarillo.
Sam will be there hand painting and signing 36 (32-ounce) growlers of Hoo Lawd that will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. There will also be a screening of the brewery’s new web-series ‘That’s Odd … Let’s Drink It’, which showcases Hoo Lawd in an epic battle of man vs. lupulin with actors Ken Marino and Joe LoTruglio.
“Hoo Lawd isn’t for everyone, but we’ve had a lot of fun and learned a lot about pushing the outer limits of hop dosing volumes and techniques with this experimental brew,” Sam said via email.
This is wonderful news for all of us out there who look at alcohol as an escape from the daily pitfalls of life.
