NYC Beer Week 2017 SMaSH BREW(Single State Malt and Single State Hop)

15 Brewers from around NYC picked one malt and one hop from a couple of their favorite NY State farms, then each made a unique beer with them. The proportions varied, and every recipe was different, but each brewery had to use only the one malt and one hop. Yeast, conditioning,  and brewer’s flair were the wild cards. With beers ranging from Belgian Saisons to Imperial IPAs, this project should surely bring a unique “Taste” to NYC Beer Week.

Malt Used:
Pale Ale, NY Craft Malt, Batavia NY

Hop Used:
Cascade, Willet Hop & Grain, Willet NY
