The Story

Tina is good friends with the Johnson family. Each year they have a respectable crop of hops in their back yard. Some time ago we decided to harvest those hops and try them out in a new creation. And Big Johnson was born. We brewed the beer as a SMASH in order to get a good feel for what the hops add to the party, and we have not been disappointed. Now we have a horde of fans who wait impatiently each year to get ahold of our Big Johnson. Try it, you may find you love it too.
