About Big Train by Left Field Brewery

Big Train is a juicy, hazy IPA with zero calculated bitterness and is named after Walter “The Big Train” Johnson, a gentle giant of a pitcher who left more zeroes in his opponents’ box score than any other. Rather than the traditional method of adding hops throughout the boil, a large dose of Mosaic and Azacca hops were added post-boil in a hop stand at 75°C to release loads of juicy guava, papaya and orange flavours without imparting any of the bitterness that you might expect from an IPA. Generous amounts of oats and wheat in the grist combined with a massive dry hop make for a nice, stable haze.

Know that feeling you get on opening day, after a walk-off home run or a suspenseful no-hitter? That’s exactly how we feel about beer.
