The first of our SMaSH Hits!, Head Gets Dumb (pale ale), a light-bodied but very flavourful (and boozy) beer featuring only a single malt and a single hop (hence, SMaSH). SMaSH beers are a nice way to highlight the complex flavours attributed to one seemingly simple ingredient. The hop: Dr. Rudi, a New Zealand flower that tasted different to each of us. Strawberry. Pineapple. Lemongrass. Pine tree. Weed resin.
This first of our SMaSH Hits! series is in tribute to oddball comedians that hit the primetime in spite of the characteristic that makes them odd. How Wude is a tribute to pot-smoking, foul-mouthed comic-turned-family-man Bob Saget. I’d describe his comedy stylings in detail but for fear of blowback, I’ll leave it to you to search it yourself.
