Description

Sunburn is a relatively potent habanero pepper beer based on Skinny Cow I.P.A. The habanero peppers interact wonderfully with the tropical, citrus hops and the malty backbone of the beer. Balanced perfectly, you don't get the full effect of the habanero heat right away, instead it hits you about 3 seconds after you swallow your first sip. After that, it's ON!


The Story

One of the owners, Chris loves pepper beers. Gregg the master brewer doesn't like them at all. When Chris asked for a pepper beer Gregg made the famous statement loudly in the taproom "We will NEVER make a pepper beer!" Then he and the assistant brewer at the time began working on a 5 gallon test batch with serrano peppers. That batch was released for Chris' birthday. The patrons LOVED it and Gregg's fate was sealed. Chris however felt the beer wasn't hot enough so habanero peppers were substituted in order to gain more heat. The rest, as they say, is history. Sunburn is now one of our most highly rated beers on untappd come try it and see why.
