Harmon Brewing to release 12th Hop IPA during Super Bowl

Seahawks, Patriots, Super Bowl. Just like we all thought, but not at all how we all thought.

Where are you going to watch Tom Brady's hair play the Seahawks Feb. 1? Some might say at the home of whoever has the biggest TV. Typically, this friend will have a wife or live-in girlfriend, and her unreasonable requests that you "put a coaster under that beer" or that you stop wiping your boogers under your seat will end abruptly when she herds the other women into the bedroom, where they'll lock themselves in and plot the murder of every guy there.

Of course, like last year, this ancient stereotype doesn't hold in the Pacific Northwest. No one will be paying any attention to coasters or boogers while the Hawks are on the tube.

In any case, may I suggest watching the Super Bowl at one of the Harmon Brewing Co. venues - Harmon Downtown, Tap Room, The Hub and The Hub Gig Harbor - for no other reason than their 12th Hop IPA.

According to Harmon head brewer Jeff Carlson, he, brewer Bill Lundeen and the crew have taken their new Pt. Defiance IPA recipe and dry hopped it with 12 different hop varieties:Simcoe, Golding, Cascade, Centennial, Magnum, Palisade, Columbus, Citra, Fuggle, Amarillo, Sterling and Sorachi Ace.

"It's perfect for the 12th Man Hop Heads," I believe Carlson said.

The ABV is 6.8 percent. Carlson didn't calculate the IBU but "There is over an ounce of dry hop per gallon," he said.

Show your 12th spirit while drinking 12 hops.
