In this beer blog, we are going to get into Knee Deep Brewing. This is the first time that this brewery and their beer is being feature on this blog. The beer is their Breaking Bud IPA. Jeremy Warren founded Knee Deep Brewing in 2010. They are known for their IPA’s. There is not much history on this brewery. They just added Michigan to their distribution map. Let us get into this IPA.
It has a clear golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has a heavy earthly to floral like notes. The taste has an earthly to grass like notes with a pine cone aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.kneedeepbrewing.com):
Old school meets new school in this fresh approach to the classic IPA. At 50 IBU’s and 6.7% ABV, Breaking Bud features the restrained bitterness and alcohol of a classic IPA with newer tropical fruit hop flavors and aromas of Mosaic. Also in the hop mix are Simcoe and CTZ, creating layers of mango, passion fruit, pine and dank. A malt bill with a pinch of crystal malt and a hefty dose of flaked wheat keeps the beer crisp while adding flavor complexity.

Closing my tab, I just happen to walk into one of liquor stores by my house. I was pretty stun to see these brews from Knee Deep Brewing. I never heard of them and of course, I pulled out my phone right away and did a little research from this craft brewery. I have to say I am not disappointed. I just wished that it came in as six pack bottles or cans. I am not a huge fan of 22oz bottles. I will say most markets are like this now. If it is a limited run beer, I am fine with it being in 22oz bottles. I like it. It is nice to get a different version of an English style IPA. I will pick up this beer once in a while. It is just the 22oz that throws me off. Once it is open. You have to drink it all. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
