As a DC resident myself, having a brewery like Other Half joining our been scene has been tremendous. Other Half DC is producing unique beers for the city rather than just copying their New York releases. The latest of these DC beers is their “Forever” series of IPAs.
The concept of this series is simple: basic malt bill to feature each beer’s respective hop varietal. Pilsner, oats, and wheat provide the canvas for each beer. This allows the drinker to really get the full profile of the single hop used in each.
Nelson, Riwaka, Citra, and Cashmere are just a handful of the versions of Forever they produce. Single-hopped beers really help breweries to show off their brewing chops and their understanding of how to use different hops.
The beers are all IPAs, but some are Double or even Triple IPAs. Every hop requires a bit of balancing, and Other Half accomplishes this masterfully. Check online for local availability or if they ship to your respective state.
