G Dog American Pale Ale

Spring is here time to fire up the PicoBrew Zymatic and test some Crosby Idaho Experimental #4 Hops in honour of the mighty Gus who muled home the world’s ultimate brewing machine from Seattle, WA to Melbourne, AU it was only appropriate we named this mighty brew after the G Dog!

Beautiful day for pico brewing outside!
