BrewDog How To Disappear Completely

Formerly brewed at BrewDog
Ellon, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
3.5% Mild Ale | 88 Ratings | Special Release |
How to Disappear Completely, Is my favourite Radiohead song. Now, it is also our most extreme beer to date. Weighing in at just 3.5% ABV but loaded with more hops per barrel than any other beer we have ever made. It is jam-packed with 2 of our favourite hops - Columbus and Centennial. It has 198 (yes one hundred and ninety eight) theoretical IBUs. It was mash-hopped and first wort hopped just for good measure. Oh and dry-hopped to hell too.

Although balance was not our priority in designing this beer we spent allot of time getting the grain bill dialled in. We use allot of caramalt, some amber malt and some pale chocolate malt to give the little beer as much body and mouth feel as possible and the ability to handle all the hops we threw at it.

We think this beer is the world’s first ever Imperial Mild. Imperial in terms of hop profile. An Imperially Hopped Mild. BrewDog’s Imperial Mild. How to Disappear Completely.
