It may be the worst kept secret in New England, but Baxter Brewing has been having a torrid love affair with hops. For Hop Tryst, we combined eight different exotic and exciting hops to let everyone know just how enamored we are. To keep the base of the beer fresh and clean, we used only lightly kilned malts while adding a touch of oats and wheat to lend some smoothness. We held off on adding almost all of the hops until the end to highlight the aromatic expressiveness of the hops, rather than their capacity for bitterness. If you feel anything like we do, you’ll crush on its crushability and savor the hop flavors.
Pairs Best With
Have Hop Tryst with fresh and flavorful dishes like fish tacos, spicy Asian cuisine or a robust salad. If you’re not feeling that fancy, this beer also kills it with pizza and wings.
