Although they were painfully humiliated when they came to brew with us a couple of years ago - an episode that would later be known as "The Great, Big Kentucky Sausage Fest" - the friendly dudes of Against The Grain Brewery were kind enough to invite us in for a second round of brewing when Morten and Jacob of Amager Bryghus last visited the US.
In spite of a house in mayhem - ATG was in the midst of constructing a new brewery AND some crazy Scotsmen from a company named Brewdog were running around making a lot of noise - big Sam Cruz and his cohorts were all their usual calm, kind and hospitable selves, as Southern folks are.
We ended up brewing a somewhat unusual style, an Imperial Rye lager - rustic and robust - of course with a more than solid hopping. Once again a beer we believe is perfectly suited for sturdy and smoked meat dishes.
