Athena dry hopped w/ Galaxy

We tell everyone to crave curiosity, well here's us being curious. We took everyone's favorite berliner and added a cool twist by dry hopping with Galaxy hops for a limited batch. 

Dry hopping is a technique often used in IPAs where hops are added directly to the fermenter at the tail end of fermentation. Normally hops are added in the kettle or whirlpool during the brewing process, so adding at this stage is a little bit different, hence why it garners a different name - dry hopping.

Galaxy hops are an extraordinary Australian varietal that have a bright, juicy, fruit flavor they add to the beer. You may be a little familiar with this hop because we use it as one of the hops in Tropicalia, but this is Galaxy all by itself. This version of Athena is a little tart, a little juicy, a little hoppy... it makes Athena a totally different beer that we really like. It's a limited release that should be hitting the market next week. Keep an eye out!
