We have a new pop up today so come check out @brannonflorie and try this delicious food! Tie One Off XXII IPA has just now been tapped and trust us you won’t want to miss this brew! This “fresh grind” IPA utilizes whole cone #chinookhops that were ground right before adding to the beer so the oils are absorbed fully producing a fresh #hop flavor! #hoplovers #lowtidebrewing #aleyeah #drinkfreshdrinklocal #chsbeer #chsaletrail #thirstythursday #tieoneoffipa
