XX Sweetgrass (2008)
Double India Pale Ale

Twenty years ago Charlie Otto began making beer in Wyoming’s first modern brewery, a 210 square foot cabin in Jackson Hole. Since then, Grand Teton Brewing Company has grown into its present 11,000 square foot facility in Victor, Idaho, winning dozens of major awards and bringing innovations like the reusable glass growler to the brewing world.

To commemorate that twenty-year history, the brewers of Grand Teton chose four of our favorite beers—three current, one historical—to update and enhance. XX Sweetgrass was the first release in our 2008 XX series.

Sweetgrass India Pale Ale has been a GTBC staple since early 2002. Brewed solidly in the American IPA style, Sweetgrass is crisp and fragrant with a generous yet smooth hop character. XX Sweetgrass is all that twice over, with double the malt and double the hops—an astonishing three pounds per barrel in the kettle and another pound per barrel of “dry-hops” added after fermentation.

The hops provide citrusy, resinous spiciness, making this beer a great match for any bold, flavorful food. Try it with prime rib, Indian food, Cajun blackened pork or chicken, Thai or Vietnamese cuisine.
