Batch 8000 from Short’s Brewing is a Quadruple IPA weighing in at a whopping 15.8% – Let that soak in for a minute. This is one of the strongest beers I’ve had in recent memory and probably also one of the smoothest that I’ve had that is this strong. The raspberry flavor covers the alcohol bite and contributes to that smoothness. Is this something you should buy? Watch and find out!
Today’s Breview 4 U is Machu Beechu from Short’s Brewing Company. When I read the label, I saw Passion Fruit, and El Dorado, Mandarina Bavaria and Vic Secret hops – and that sounds like an awesome combination of flavors and aromas. Did it live up to the expectation? Stay tuned to find out!

Psychedelic Cat Grass by Short’s is made and shipped as fresh as possible. The pack I picked up was actually bottled the same day I bought it. This triple hopped IPA beauty may be too piney for some fans, but it teases with enough citrus sweetness to win me over. This is my first review of a Short’s beer since their 20% sale to Lagunitas, and I’m going to be as objective as possible when reviewing their beers going forward.
I have to admit, at first I gave the original Slurm a good review. But now that I’ve had several different NE IPA’s, I feel like Shorts really missed the mark with that beer. Well only two months later their back to try to redeem themselves (I’m sure they’re doing this just to win me back) with the Double New England IPA – Slurm Lord. How does it stack up?
