Todd Haug’s Minnesota swan song, HEXIT, will be released at Badger Hill Brewing on Saturday, Jan. 28 at noon. The beer will be available for purchase in 750ml bottles, on draft at the taproom, and at some retail locations following the event.
The beer is a dry-hopped braggot made with 600 pounds of honey. Badger Hill’s Facebook event describes it as having “loads of oats and honey flavor with dry hop aroma of mic drop proportions. Think of it as your Breakfast IPA.” Read more about the beer and the brew day in our report here.
The profits from HEXIT will go directly to the Minnesota Honey Producers Association and the University of Minnesota Bee Lab.
Haug had been developing the idea for the braggot since summer and had gotten to the point of sourcing the necessary honey from a local producer, Rufer’s Apiaries Inc. But his resignation as director of brewing operations at Surly caused him to put the idea on the shelf until the opportunity to brew it at Badger Hill arose.
