Pints & Purls Edition 27: Lasso

This is the twenty-seventh in a series of installments that will highlight one of my favorite brews and which knits to go with it!  None of the breweries or yarn companies are compensating me – these are just my opinions on my personal experiences!

…………………………………..IMG_2759

Brew: Lasso

Brewer: Great Divide

Malts:

Hops: Columbus, Centennial, Cascade

IBU: 50

ABV: 5%IMG_2761

Flavors: Lots of flavor in this bottle, a sweet bitterness that starts out floral and ends citrus-y.  Heavier than the light IPAs and lighter than the heavy IPAs, it’s got a lengthy finish of hoppy bitter.

Knit Pairings:  This isn’t a mild beer and you shouldn’t be knitting a mild project!  No garter stitch scarves here, I recommend pairing this brew with something more complex and in the “Wild West” spirit this brew boasts – a bandana-shaped shawlette or even a cowboy hat (seriously, you can totally do that).

Notes:

…………………………………………

Let me know what you think!  Suggestions for future beers, more/different information to include, this is a work in progress so I won’t be offended by constructive advice!
