A little over a week ago, Other Half Brewing announced that they’d just brewed All Green Everything, their much-adored 10.5% ABV Imperial IPA, for the last time this year, which is sad but understandable: from the very little I know about making beer, this seems like an insanely expensive one to make, considering the huge amount of malts required to get the alcohol content up so high. Judged against other similar beers–Bell’s Hopslam, Sierra Nevada’s Hoptimum, or, more locally, Peekskill’s Higher Standard and KelSo’s Industrial IPA–it holds up brilliantly, giving off a more tropical hoppiness and overall less sweetness than the others. (The next blind taste test I want to do is between All Green, Industrial and Higher Standard, but I suppose that will have to wait.)
If you want to make sure you get to taste it before it goes away, you’ll probably want to act this weekend. Beer Menus has a list of bars, including places likeBar Great Harry, Covenhoven and some of our other favorites, where you can still find it. You could also go to Other Half tasting room and get a growler filled. I drank 32 ounces of it by myself earlier this week, and it ruled.
