This is the thirty-fourth 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!
Brew: Castaway IPA
Brewer: Kona Brewing
Malts: Pale (Premium 2-row)
Hops: Galaxy, Citra, Simcoe, Milenium
Flavors: Citrusy and floral, this is a great IPA for the summa’ time! Crisp and easy to drink with enough hop/malt balance to keep it from being too heavy and filling.
Knit Pairings: This beer would be a great addition to some “afternoon in the hammock” knitting – I’m talking linen, hemp, cotton, silk and all the blends. Whip up a cute little market bag or light summer cardigan and sip on the beer through the process, they’re a match made in heaven.
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!
