Check out the press release issued today from Crazy Mountain Brewing Company and find out what it's all about.

Crazy Mountain Brewing Company Releases “Neomexicanus Native Pale Ale”

[PRESS RELEASE] Edwards, Colo. – January 8, 2014 – Crazy Mountain Brewing Company announces the release of its newest beer style: Neomexicanus Native Pale Ale. This beer is a tribute to the artistic expression that can be realized when a brewery and a hop farmer partner together with the common goal of achieving something new and creative. Neomexicanus Native Pale Ale is an exploration of a largely undocumented hop, native to the South Western United States. This ale offers a citrusy aroma with a distinct lemon lime and guava character while maintaining a moderate acidity what accentuates the delicate flavors and bouquet of this brew.

Humulus Lupulus NeomexicanusThe unique aspect of this beer is the new and experimental hop that is used, Humulus Lupulus Neomexicanus. This species of hops is completely native to the United States and is genetically different from other varieties of hops currently commercially available. Crazy Mountain partnered with CLS Farms in the Yakima growing region of Washington to brew with this unheard of hop. As of now, only Crazy Mountain and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company have experimented with the unique hop in commercial brewing. This special beer is a culmination of a 5-year search by Crazy Mountain for this hop and a two year partnership with CLS Farms getting this hop ready for cultivation. Coming in at 6% ABV and 46 IBU, Neomexicanus Native Pale Ale makes its debut in Colorado on Friday, January 10th and will be available exclusively in Colorado, Texas and California.
