it's no secret that i love me a good i.p.a. luckily for me i.p.a.'s and double i.p.a.'s are the new "it" beer in the brewing world. smaller breweries have been turning out gems like sierra nevada and longhammer for years, and now the big guys are trying to catch up. unfortunately for them, i.p.a.'s need to be nursed, and the handcrafted ones will always taste better that any bud or miller version.
and on that note, i'm attempting to drink my way through the i.p.a. menu at the capital ale house. i partook in this one the other night, and in my drunkeness, i snapped this shot to share with you. when i was in college, i went through a phase that proclaimed lenny bruce as my lord and savior; i've since made it through all that, but still have much respect and admoration for the man. this brew was made to "salute the jew" and celebrate the 40 year anniversary of his death. it was made in super small quantities, and when i found out that this was the last bottle, i felt as if i had no choice but to partake in its goodness. he'brew | lenny bruce r.i.p.a. maltier than an i.p.a. should be, but damn delicious.
