This is it, our first home collab with our friends at Garage Beer Co and it's been a long time in the making. All who know both our breweries know full well we have a deep kinship. We're a married couple. And nothing was going to stop us getting together to brew a beer this year now we've made a home. Not even the lockdown.
So it was with the wonders of technology that we've put in our headphones, done our zoomies and got to work on brewing the big hop belter we've been planning ages - Plausible Deniability, our leg of the Stir Crazy Solidarity series - and we did the DIPA.
The crew at Garage were pretty excited at the idea of pushing our mash filter to the absolute max to fit in as much soupy chew into this ons as we possibly could, and it worked. This one's over 50% Flaked Oats & Wheat with a light sprinkling of barley for the normies. We packed our whirlpool to the max with Columbus & Simcoe, fermented it on London Ale III then double dry hopped this monster with Lemondrop, Sultana and our mutual friend BRU-1, an absolute favourite for both our brewhouses.
There's a lot going on here. It's big and chewy, feathery and creamy and is absolutely oozing lupulin glands from start to finish that'll leave you considering wondering what the hell you were doing with your life before you drank this.
This is a stone cold belter.
