A bee sting is never enjoyable but a Stingerhead surely is. While designing this recipe we thought of bees, honey, and the pollination of hops. Hops are the showcase so we “dry-hopped” kegs with a generous amount of fresh, local hops that will be revealed the day of the competition. For extra hop flavor and aroma we added Centennial-Type hop pellets to the fermenter to ensure the job is complete. Get buzzing with a Stingerhead!

It's not a whale. It's not a dolphin. And not just a lobster, but a hop lobster, red and proud, and ready to rock! It has a sweet, full body and a pleasant smoothness due to generous amounts of red wheat. Smooth on front of the palate, it finishes with a hint of roast and chocolate flavors, balanced with a spicy kick of Chinook hops and Brewer's Gold. Enjoy and rock on!
