Notes / Commercial Description:
his is Couch Trippin’ Fusion #19. Where music meets craft beer. This a new spin on a beer collaboration. The brew day was full of some pretty amazing up and coming bands and a few beer writers. We brewed a “mother beer” or base beer that will be blended into various barrels. Mother beer is an amber beer week dry hopped with Nelson Savin and Mosaic hops. In true California fashion, we vaporized various hops to get a feel for which hops nuanced the beer the best. You literally inhale (a bit like you would something else!) the aromas from the bag. Trust me, you’ll know hops after this.

Lagunitas hitting a home run here. Not quite brown in color, but hitting all the marks for a nice malty beer. All the way around, a beautiful and tasty beer.
