In this beer blog, we are going to get into a brewery from Michigan I have been waiting to try for a while. It is Right Brain Brewery and the brew is their Dead Kettle IPA. I had a chance to try this beer at Michigan Brewer’s Guild Summerfest. Right Brain is located on the north-west part of the state and the City Of Traverse City, Michigan. There is not too much information on this young brewery. Let us get into the beer.
It has a cloudy copper color with a constant white head. The smell is hints of grapefruit. The taste is ripping the skin off a grapefruit without aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Working as a brewer means practicing your craft, knowing your equipment, and always being able to think on your feet.
Many years ago a dead brewing kettle was the spark that lead to eventual creation of this Right Brain Classic.
Showcasing heavy citrus notes and hop aroma, Dead Kettle is light bodied and refreshing. Strong Grapefruit notes make way for a pleasantly bitter finish.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, this beer is something else. Of course, it is in a good way. I love my IPA’s and this one is on my top ten beers. I love the huge and heavy grapefruit beer. It is extremely balance and this beer is done up right. I love the packaging and the story about the name of the brewery. I hope in the future they put out 12oz bottles or cans or 16oz cans. I am not a huge fan of 22oz bottles. I highly highly HIGHLY recommend this brew. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
