Your parents always told you to eat your vegetables as a kid. While you may neglect to eat anything green with that extra-large pizza, now you can meet your parents halfway. This week, Other Half DC is releasing their vegetable-named but IPA-inspired beers, Spinach and Tomato*.
Spinach was less (as in not at all) inspired by the leafy green stuff and slightly more by the art of local DC artists. At 7% ABV, this beer is tame by Other Half’s standards but delivers on the hop punch as always. A mouth-watering combo of Citra, Mosaic, El Dorado, and Nelson Sauvin comes in big with flavor while not knocking you out after one can.
While tomatoes can be hotly debated, there is no debating that Tomato (the Imperial IPA) is the type of beer people associate with Other Half. Citra, Vic Secret, Riwaka, and Sabro give this juice bomb a full mouth of flavor while the name pays homage to the brewing facility’s former occupant. I will let you guess what the last tenant canned, but I CAN tell you it rhymes with smushshmato.
