A brand new creation from Southern Tier Brewing Co. is brewed with four different forms of hops.
The beer in question is Empire Destroyer, a 9 percent ABV imperial IPA. According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the new IPA will be brewed with four different forms of hops: hop pellets, whole hop cones, hop hash and distilled hop oil.
Empire Destroyer will be brewed at Brewers at 4001 Yancey in Charolette, N.C. and will be part of Southern Tier’s Innovative Flavors in the Queen City Series, which is made up of beers that “are inspired by the brewing history and standards of Southern Tier’s famous beers but add locally relevant twists to fit the Carolinas.”
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
