Buckle up, guys. Old Thunder Brewing has been hitting things out of the park since opening less than a year ago. I’m so excited to see that they’re taking the Pittsburgh Brewery world by storm. This week, they’ve got an amazing can list that is all in on one of the things they do best- IPAs!
I’m so excited about the can list because I’ve heard nothing but hype about these releases. There’s so many options, yinz! First up? Their latest release – Hearts in History. A 7% American IPA brewed with a proprietary blend of hops called Zamba, this is a juicy one. A soft, chewy and unique brew, except all the right citrus notes here!
Moving on in our tour de IPA, the doubles. Ooh man there are so many options! You could choose Big Blox (8%), a beer brewed with flaked wheat and malted wheat. A smooth, crushable hazeboi, this one is perfect for the warmer weather! There’s also Lions on Fourth Ave (7.7%), created with midwest-grown barley and oats and loaded with Citra. With grapefruit and tangerine taste, this beer balances hazy and juicy perfectly. But wait, there’s more! Dissolve and Disintegrate, an 8.2% DIPA rounding out this killer lineup. Hopped with varieties from New Zealand and the Pacific Northwest, expect a balanced beer for the ages.
And there’s FIVE more IPA options available in cans. Wowza. Personally, I’m really interested in Heroes and Ghosts (7.5%). This beer is dubbed a Northern-Cali IPA. This West Coast brew is bringing that piney and bitter bite for all of you hop heads out there. I will be trying to get my hands on this one for sure!
Old Thunder is killing it, friends. With so many tasty brews available to go, you need to make this spot the next stop in your can haul! I’ve also found their brews throughout the city, so keep your eyes peeled and grab one soon!
