Brewing a nuanced, full-bodied and consistent beer at 4.5% ABV is incredibly difficult. We wanted a thread of that signature Verdant juiciness running through it without compromising on the sessionability or approachability. We first brewed lightbulb back in 2015, and we’ve tweaked it pretty much every time we’ve brewed it.
We finally believe we’re happy with it, brewing it two days in a row with different yeasts then blending them to achieve those two sides to its character. The bittering hops are turned up and the aroma hops down, using less fruit forward varieties and more of the old school “C” hops that bring both citrus and more savoury notes of pine and freshly cut grass.
