The Windowsill is revving up for a long hog ride today!

Black Hog Brewing Company was  opened in August 2014 by brothers Jason and Tom Sobocinski. The brothers grew up in a Polish/Italian family, so they grew up with a love of food and drink—specifically a nice, juicy, roasted pig. The pig of choice for all celebrations was the Berkshire Pig, which is known for its black color. See where I’m going with this? They hooked up with their old friend, brewer Tyler Jones, and Black Hog Brewing Company was born.

The Easy Rye’Da has a name name and can art inspired by the classic 1969 motorcycle movie Easy Rider. It’s a rye IPA brewed with Bravo, Summit, 07270, Denali and Eureka hops and yes, rye malt (along with other varieties, too). As they say on the official description, this is a session beer, so you can cruise on it all day long. This one was OK for me. The Easy Rye’Da didn’t quite get my motor runnin’, but it didn’t flood my engine either. Decent!
