Schwarz | 8.3% ABV | 83% IBU
You have to be big and bold to survive a Minnesota winter. It's a good thing our Uber Lupin Schwarz IPA is just that. The unification of American ingenuity with German excellence creates a new-world beer style with old-world ingredients. Rich cocoa and toasted bread crumbs balance pungent, spicy, piney, and floral hops. Uber Lupin smells so good you'll want to drink it through your nose; however, Balthazar doesn't recommend it. Big ol' Balthazar is the burly man brandishing the morning star and mash paddle on our can labels. Legend has it that this blacksmith defended his entire town and brewery single-handedly against an invading horde. Big beer, big character. It's like Bent Brewstillery Owner and Head Brewstiller Bartley Blume once told local craft beer magazine, The Growler's just a big, brutal German guy that fits the big, brutal German beer? Like Balthazar, Bent Brewstillery isn't afraid to mix it up with the unknown.
