Oh no! The Windowsill is under attack from a super delicious beer monster!

Nod Hill Brewery is named after the hill that rises behind their Ridgefield, CT building. The father-son team of Robert and Dave Kaye opened the 10-barrel brewery just before Halloween last year. Although the pair were avid home brewers before Nod Hill, they hired head brewer Kyle Acenowr to help them with the increased volume and precision to make beer for the masses. Like the campfire depicted in their logo, Nod Hill Brewery is a welcoming gathering place for friends to meet, relax, and enjoy fresh beer. Sounds pretty good!

The Super Mantis is a double IPA brewed with Pale and Munich malts and flaked oats, hopped with Citra and Galaxy hops and also fermented with Nod Hill’s house ale yeast. At 8.7% ABV, it definitely packs a punch, but that’s what you’d expect from a DIPA. In case you’re wondering, the beautiful labels on both cans are designed by Atlanta-based artist @briansteely, who also designed Nod Hill’s logo. Check out his Instagram page for more of his art!
