Everyone knows the ol’ saying: If you can’t stand the heat…take a sip of your Big Barrel Double IPA. And with this dish, you’re going to need it. The beer’s assertive hop flavors temper the spicy sriracha butter, while the sweetness from the shrimp and creamy grits bring a nice balance to this hop forward IIPA.
Big Barrel IIPA is a boldly hopped Double IPA brewed in true West Coast fashion. Warrior hops give Big Barrel an aggressive bitterness, while New Zealand-grown Nelsons lend citrus and tropical hop flavors.
