beer of the week
Bare Hands Brewery Granger, IN
An experimental IPA brewed with Thai spices. We added Thai palm sugar, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf, and galangal (Thai ginger) late in the boil to create a citrusy ale with a spiced finish. Thai spices mingle with Columbus and Cascade hops to create a balance of spice and hops. American 2-row barley, white rice, and crystal malts combine for a crisp, dry finish.
