COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Free Beer - What if quality could be cheap? What if high content beer could be cheaper than low content beer? Would this affect choice?

This reflection sparked the second collaboration of Evil Twin Brewing & Omnipollo. An IPA brewed using an abundance of Australian and New Zeeland hops laid on a fluffy bed of English, Belgian and German malts.

The twist - to remove the money aspect of choosing craft beer we decided to bring in a sponsor.

Batch #1 is generously sponsored by The Bishops Arms. Specialty beer bar and pioneers of the Swedish craft beer scene.

Enjoy,

Henok & Jeppe
