Initially, when making this beer, the idea was that we would be using Columbus hops as the defining character. But then we had a realization…using lupulin powder is the latest hop technology available globally, increasing aroma without increasing perceived bitterness. Utilizing cryopowder in Your IPA will increase the everyday yield.
Combined with using a more efficient centrifuge production, we can provide a better value for you and your everyday IPA. This also allows us to give proceeds of the beer to charity, so we’ve hatched a master plan…
Brewed in Wyoming, USA
This is the beginning of your wonderful new, Kung Fu friendship between our brew family and all beer lovers alike. Talk of Melvin began on the California West coast — but the heart of Melvin started beating in the small mountain town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
With big ideas and even bigger barrels of hops, Melvin now takes off in the hands of Co-Founder/Field Hoperative — Jeremy Tofte, Co-Founder/Head Donkey — Kirk McHale, and Head Production Brewer — Dave Chichura. Let’s get to it. Thai Me Up Restaurant, the original home of Melvin Brewing, was already known for its world class beer. Melvin is now expanding from a 3bbl to a 30bbl system after winning two medals at the World Beer Cup earlier this year: A gold in the Imperial Indian Pale Ale category for its 2x4 and a bronze in the fruit beer category for its Chchchch-Cherry Bomb.
