Celebrate Craft Beer Week: Steelhead Double IPA

We are celebrating Craft Beer Week (May 11-May 17) at The Humidor Cigar Bar & Lounge!  Join us as we showcase a different craft beer every day.  On Thursday, we are featuring Steelhead Double IPA from Mad River Brewing Company.

Since 1989, Mad River Brewing Company has been brewing award winning beers.  In the late seventies Brew Master Bob Smith, founder of the HOMEBREWERS Guild, dreamed of opening a small brewery specializing in craft beers. Excursions to buy brewing supplies led Bob to Ken Grossman’s Homebrew Shop in Chico, California.

After Ken shared his plans to build Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. in Chico, Bob became determined to build a craft brewery in Humboldt County. In 1989 construction began on what is now known as Mad River Brewing Co.

I have great appreciation for Dylan’s brews and his beard.

Nestled in Humboldt County adjacent to the Mad River in Blue Lake CA, Mad River is now under the command of Brewmaster Dylan Schatz.

Malty, hoppy and robust, Double IPA (8.7% ABV) is dry hopped with Amarillo hops for a fresh piney and citrus flavor and aroma. Aggressively hopped, but perfectly balanced.

We have been serving the Steelhead Double IPA for some time at the Humidor and I am a big fan!  Come enjoy this brew today for half price!
