Kut Down Takes The Hill

We knew Glen Perkins was retired. We knew he liked to brew beer. And we knew we wanted to brew a beer that we could pour at Target Field (where Glen used to work) and the bars and restaurants in the area for Opening Day and beyond.

We asked him if he wanted to a brew a beer. He said yes. And Kut Down IPA is the result.

First of all, pretend that K is backwards, for the “struck out looking” symbol on your baseball scorecard. Our keyboards can’t handle this request. Second of all, we got that name from “God’s Gonna Cut You Down,” the late-period Johnny Cash banger that served as Perkins’ entrance music for the Twins.

As for the beer itself, it’s a traditional American IPA. The recipe is derived from Glen’s homebrew IPA, using Amarillo, Centennial, Simcoe, and a Citra dry-hop addition. Expect American hop aromatics—orange, pineapple, grapefruit, grass, and pine. Glen, Head Brewer Ben Smith, and the Surly team collaborated on the entire thing on one epic brew day last month, which also included a staggering array of smoked meats and a game of catch in the parking lot (seriously).

You can find it at Target Field for the Twins home opener against Seattle at the new draft beer area by Gate 34 called, sensibly, Drafts at 34. Here’s a handy map of all Surly locations at the yard:

Stats:

  • Hops: Amarillo, Centennial, Simcoe, and Citra (dry-hop)
