Humorous Ludicrous – Hazy Lupulin Hopped IPA Hops are known in the plant world as Humulus Lupulus. So, what do you call a beer using such a ridiculous amount of pure lupulin that it’s funny? Well, Humorous Ludicrous, of course! They decided that Citra and Mosiac Lupulin (in the form ofCryo hops) would best let hoppy citrus and tropical flavours truly shine, while still having the right amount of bitterness to back up this humorously ludicrous amount of hop flavours and aromas. Itwill have you screaming: “Move malt, get out the way! Get out the way malt, get out the way.”
Behemoth Brewing and Andrew Childs are synonymous. He is the owner, brewer, and beer giraffe of Behemoth Brewing Company in New Zealand. But, how did he get this whole thing going? Well, he had been a big fan of good beer for a long time (dating back to when he collected beer glasses as an 11 year old with a paper run) and one day decided to turn his obsession into a career.
DID YOU KNOW?
In late 2015 Andrew and brewing buddy Jason, from McLeod’s, were involved in a horrible brewing accident while brewing Behemoth’s first lot of In Ya Face Double IPA, they both received burns to around 40% of their bodies and spent a long time in hospital. A full recovery for both is near and Andrew thanks you all, the Behemoth fan club, for your love and support during that trying time. It’s taking a couple of years, but he says that he knows the accident has just re-enforced his calling in life. Beer!
