I Paid the cost to drink the boss on the Windowsill today!

Whole Foods is at it again, partnering with a New York craft brewery to bring an exclusive beer to market. This time, the supermarket chain struck a deal with Newburgh’s Newburgh Brewing Company to release today’s beer, the NewYorkBoss. This is actually part of an even bigger collaboration initiative from Newburgh, called the Boss Series. The NanoBoss, MegaBoss and GigaBoss are their original IPAs (there’s also a LagerBoss), but the new series includes the following collaborations: NewYorkBoss (Whole Foods), the ChefBoss (with The Brewery at CIA) and the MooeyBoss (with Bonn Place Brewing). A new Boss collaboration will be released every month!

I Decided to drink the NewYorkBoss in honor of the New York Yankees, who currently wear that title after winning 15 of their last 16 games (the crosstown Mets, meanwhile, have won just 5 of their last 16). It’s an IPA brewed using 100% New York State-grown ingredients, with hops from Pedersen Farms in the Finger Lakes, and malt from Germantown Beer Farm. Very citrusy and delicious! Those NYS ingredients really make for great brews. Go Newburgh, Go Boss Series, and Go Yankees!

If you think my window sill’s been very hops-centric of late, I’m sorry. It’s getting even hoppier today!

Quick! I need you to name as many varieties of hops as you can, right off the top of your dome. Did you name eight different ones? If you did, you’re a better beer connoisseur than I am.

Why did I just make you show me how much more you know about beer than I do? Because the MegaBoss IPA, made by Newburgh, NY’s Newburgh Brewing Company, is brewed with 8 different kinds of hops: Whole Leaf Delta, Simcoe, Amarillo, Sorachi Ace, Lemon Drop, Apollo, Cascade and Centennial hops. That combination, along with the aroma of pineapple and tropical fruit was so crisp, floral and tasty that even my wife, who typically really doesn’t like IPAs, thought it was delightful. If the MegaBoss can convince my wife, can you imagine what it can do for you?
