4/20: Waldos’ Special Ale

It’s that time of year again! Our Petaluma TapRoom will start tapping a limited amount of our Waldos’ Special Ale starting 4/20…

Though we change this slightly every year it always ends up bein’ the dankest, hoppiest brew we make.
This year clocks in at 84.20 IBUs and 10.5% ABV. Murkily un-filtered and mysteriously mixed with some unique grains, malted rye, oats and spelt (a type of wheat, spelled just like that).
Next, we Dry Hopped with experimental varieties HBC366, Australian Galaxy, and its usual Simcoe and Mosaic (which went into last year’s Waldo as HBC369).
Altogether, 2013 Waldos’ Special is super skunky and resinous. Someone likened it to licking your lips after your first hit of a freshie …whatever that means. At approximately 9 pounds per barrel of hops, we’re sure it’s probably a good thing. Cheers to all you treasure hunters!

We’ll be tapping several kegs at our Petaluma TapRoom all day 4/20. Look for lucky bars, pubs and fine establishments near you with the treasured goods, too. Cheers!
