First Deep Ellum Brewing filed suit against the CANarchy group and now another defection, this time close to home as Three Weavers Brewing is buying back what was sold a previously so the collective seems to be splitting at the seams.
Three Weavers and Inglewood have a SoFi growth spurt in front of them as the state and city re-open and in advance of Olympics in a few years time so that was probably part of the decision making process.
And does this mean that collectives are just not conducive to craft beer?
The second of the Three Weavers featured reviews is Light Trails IPA. Getting quite a bit of grape character to this one Soft texture here as well, the bitterness is nicely understated. The aroma is very red wine barrel. Not the usual aroma which wakes up the senses. Overall, a very tannic experience, the IPA for wine fans.
This pale ale pours a vibrant yellow. Pine and earthiness are first to make their presence known followed by a minor note of grapefruit. For a pale ale, Deep Thoughts has a strong layer of bitterness to it while still being lighter in body. Additional citrus notes come through as the beer warms up making the flavor profile more complex.
I am hoping that maybe, down the road, there will be a mixed 4-pack each can featuring a different hop.
Haven’t talked about Three Weavers in a mo’ but they have a new imperial stout with an Irish twist to it Some Dark Hollow. A big 12.3% that aged in Jameson Irish Whisky casks. Look for it in finer beer shoppes.
Three Weavers is hitting us with (3) IPA’s in the 3rd month of the year. After having Expatriate IPA for the first time in a long while, I am intrigued by the West Coast, Light Trails the most but if you like Pineapple, that could work well too.
If you are in the Inglewood area today, you might want to check out Three Weavers and their latest Friday / Brewery Only release. “Yakima Bloom is a nod to the hard working hop growers of the Northern Hemisphere – our fresh hop pale ale is made with freshly picked Citra hops and is perfect for celebrating the end of the harvest season.” We don’t get the level of fresh hop beers that Oregon and Washington get so, hop on it.
