Annex Ales made Howling Fantods again!
This is an incredible hazy hop monster of a beer and one I was super fortunate to be involved with the first time it was made a couple of years ago.
I was working at a hop farm at the time and so my contribution to the collab was mostly suggesting hops for the hop bill. Being a novice homebrewer at the time, I heavily leaned on my brewing mentor and haze master Bryan Craig (now of Bright Eye Brewing) for advice/help with the hop bill and hazy brewing tips. Then I showed up in Calgary with an MEC duffle bag full of 100+ lbs of hops and the rest of the time was a crazy awesome blur of brewing, drinking and checking out some of the killer Calgary craft beer scene.
Andrew is such a kick ass dude, a great brewer and one of my favourite people in the industry. I absolutely fell in love with Annex on that trip, and love the Calgary beer scene.
I cannot wait to try Howling Fantods 2.0! I am sure Andrew cranked this version up to 11 and beyond. Super proud of my small part in this beer. I think we made something awesome. If you are in Calgary definitely seek this beer out. Cheers to Annex, Andrew, Erica and the whole Annex team and to Bryan! 🍻
