Do I want another Double Dry-Hopped IPA on my Window Sill? YEAH BUDDY!

Before Prohibition, 1/10th of all American beer originated from the Bushwick neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. The last brick-and-mortar brewery to operate in Brooklyn was Schafer, which shut its doors in 1976. It took 40 years, but partners Zack Kinney, Pete Lengyel and Tony Bellis finally brought beer back to Bushwick, when they opened their KCBC brewery and tap room in 2016.

The DDH Yeah Buddy! Is a double dry hopped DIPA that Kings County Brewing Collective brewed along with another New York brewery, Finback Brewery. I never had the original Yeah Buddy!, which was released in February, but this DDH version was the bomb. The juice bomb, to be exact. Citra, Mosaic and Idaho 7 hops are involved, as is Valencia orange zest. From the color to the smell to the taste, this one was awesome. What a collaboration! Shout out to @funnybonestuff for the can art. So cool!
