I love me some Dancing Gnome, friends. They are simply the best when it comes to IPAs and anything hazy and amazing. I’ve grown to love this place throughout my years of beer drinking, and I’ve needed to credit them for my deepened love of IPAs.
This week, they’ve truly been firing on all cylinders and have been released a ton of amazing stuff on us, beer friends! First off, it’s the beginnings of Lustra Day, folks! The flagship of Dancing Gnome’s battalion of amazing brews, Lustra is perfect, in my humble opinion. A 5.8% brew that is a mix of marked barley, hops, yeast, and water, start here when it comes to all things Pittsburgh and IPA. You won’t regret it, promise.
And then there’s the double version of this epic brew. Double Lustra (8.5%) is, in my opinion, in the top five of Pittsburgh beers. Big in taste and ABV, this is a brew that is perfect for summer days and time spent outside. Think the same hops and taste with Lustra but turned up to 11, spinal tap style. Big citrus taste, big body, and big taste. I love this beer – its a hoppy, dank, juicy brew that will make your day, promise.
With the launch of these great brews comes a subtle, yet statement making logo rebrand from our friends at Dancing Gnome. After around five years of using the trifecta logo, they have upgraded and given themselves a fresh new look. Now, we’ve got a clean, simple logo that has the hop, beard, and crown that has grown to be how Dancing Gnome is identified. This week, a fresh logo redesign and new beer have come at the forefront. I personally love the new redesign and will be grabbing a Dancing Gnome T-shirt ASAP. It’s sick, enough said. New merch is available with the new logo and it’s selling like hot cakes! Check out their store now while it’s still available!
This redesign comes at the perfect timing. As I mentioned earlier, we’re at that great time of the year where all things Lustra are celebrated. A personal favorite of these Dancing Gnome Brews, Lustra exists in many iterations and versions that are straight up beloved in Pittsburgh. As of now, only regular and double have been released, but stay tuned for the release of Lager Lustra, Triple Lustra and Half Lustra. Regardless of your beer persuasions, Dancing Gnome has you covered this week! Try one of these or try all, you seriously can’t go wrong. Cheers to Lustra week and all things to come, Dancing Gnome!
