#122 Blind Pig - Russian River

Full-bodied, very hoppy, citrus, pine, fruity notes with nice dry, bitter finish!

A speakeasy, also called a blind pig or blind tiger, is an establishment that illegally sells alcoholic beverages.

In 1994, Vinnie Cilurzo (now Co-Owner/Brewmaster of Russian River), a business partner and an investor opened Blind Pig Brewing Company in Temecula, California. They owned it for about 3 years during which time Vinnie earned awards at the Great American Beer Festival and the critical acclaim of being the first brewer to make a Double I.P.A. commercially (Blind Pig Inaugural Ale in 1994).
