Roughtail Blog Takeover: Roughtail to create new beer for ZooBrew

True story: A few years ago, I brokered a meeting between the organizers of ZooBrew and Roughtail Brewing Co. to devise a specially made brew for the beer-tasting event.

The result was maybe one of my favorite one-off beers made by Roughtail -- Bamboo IPA.

For ZooBrew this year, Roughtail is rekindling the partnership and creating a rather unique beer:


Although some of the details are still unavailable, I can report that Monkey Shines will be a banana IPA.

Certainly an intriguing proposition. Will it taste like a hoppy hefeweizen? How will the banana be incorporated? Will it score the full 18 points for aggressiveness on the 18-point Roughtail flavor rating scale?

As per usual, I will share more details when I have them. And ZooBrew? Now in its seventh year, it's set for Sept. 25 and you can get tickets right here.
