Nachmelený (Czech Double IPA)
Nachmelený / Czech Double IPA
Godspeed Brewery | 355ml | 8.0%
In the Czech Republic, picking hops isn’t just a part of local agriculture, it is a rite of passage. Under communism, Czechs in every high school and university were sorted into "hop brigades" each summer, where they helped farmers tend and pick their immaculate crops of Saaz in Zatec. Though it is no longer a universal practice, hop picking remains an important coming-of-age tradition and popular summer gig in Bohemia. As luck and circumstance would have it, you get to enjoy the fruits of their labour with Nachmelený Czech Double IPA.
The beer itself showcases Kazbeck and Saaz hops, featuring notes of freshly-picked field berries, geranium, and ripe stone fruit. Double decocted, naturally carbonated, and made with floor malted Czech barley, Nachmelený connects Czech brewing tradition with modern hopping rates to create a sublime and surprising double IPA.
