Here There Be Dragons

Like many of us, our BC Small Batch Series laid low this spring. But with summer here and a little more freedom of movement for now (wear your masks, people), we were able to flex our brewing muscles at the original Brooklyn Center brewery and send a new beer out into the world this week.

As we’ve experimented with this series, one thing has ironically become very clear: You really like it when we do a hoppy, hazy IPA. It’s only fitting that we roar back with a new spin on this popular style.

Neon Dragons is a double dry-hopped, hazy double IPA that checks every single box for this kind of beer. It flickers to life with an electric jolt of Huell Melon, Amarillo, Mosaic, and Centennial hops, and it positively glows with juicy citrus and stone fruit flavors and aromatics.

The particulars:

Hops: Huell Melon, Amarillo, Mosaic, Centennial

Malt: Vienna, Pilsner, Unmalted Wheat, Oats

Pour: Hazy Gold

ABV: 9.6%

Neon Dragons is available to all U.S. Surly markets. Please do not say “Here there be dragons” when you see it in public, you’re at the HyVee, not Mordor.
