I feel like there aren’t that many more firsts, style wise, for this channel, but today I have a brand spanking new beer style, and it’s the Brut IPA. Today’s Brut IPA comes to us from Brewery Vivant in Grand Rapids, Michigan – and it’s Champion Brut. Brut’s are more known in the champagne world, but in the IPA world, they’re known for having a very dry finish due to the yeasts that are being used. So sit back, relax, have a brut IPA and watch this review!
Continuing part of their art of the tart series, Lost Minds is their take on the Tart IPA, following in the footsteps of Pumpkin Tart and Tart Side of the Moon (a tart stout – catch my review here: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyixYrgilfs )
I loved how upended those two styles, so what do I think of their tart IPA? Watch and find out!
I’m back at it again with another from Brewery Vivant, and this time it’s a doozy. Wizard Burial Ground is their limited, once a year release and they really try to blow the doors off the sucka with it. This is a bourbon barrel aged belgian style quad that will make you feel like you’ve just been struck by a lightening bolt. Weighing in at 11.8% for the 2017 release, don’t be surprised if it casts polymorph on you and transforms you into a drunken version of yourself.

My mind was kind of blown when I tried Brewery Vivant’s Pumpin Tart, because it took what I liked about pumpkin ales and added that extra twist of tartness. Well, guess what? They’re back at it again and this time it’s a tart imperial stout called “Tart Side of the Moon”. Weighing in at 9.5%, it’s sure to be a doozy.
