The Still in Las Vegas: Beer(s) of the Week 

The Still in Las Vegas Has Two Choices for Beer of the Week In Case It’s Too Soon 

It’s down to the pennant series in the MLB Playoffs, and after the intense battle between the SoCal teams, The Still in Las Vegas decided to offer two choices for the beer of the week for fans who might still be reeling from the outcome. For those who desire a state of harmony despite the rivalry, then Duet from Alpine Beer Company is for you. For Dodger fans who are still a little bitter they won’t be facing the Phillies this week, then the Pennsylvania-based Dirt Wolf IPA could not be a better choice. 

Alpine Beer Company – Duet 

From: San Diego, California 

Brewery: Alpine Beer Company 

Style: West Coast-Style IPA

ABV: 7%

IBU: 41

Pairs Best With: Signature Buffalo Wings and Spicy Fries 

Why It Slaps: This beer sort of tastes like the moment you realize it’s finally fallen–it has a pungent blend of pine tree, orange, and cedar with a classic hoppy taste. It’s a single IPA in the West Coast style that is made with Simcoe and Amarillo hops that have a sunny, San Diego color. When you taste this, you get why the Alpine Beer Company is known as “The Home of Pure Hoppiness.” 

Review: “This beer has got an intriguing smell to it. Sort of like if the car air freshener hanging from your rearview mirror suddenly punched you in the face, but, like, in a good way.”

Dirt Wolf IPA 

From: Downington, Pennsylvania

Brewery: Victory Beer

Style: Double IPA

ABV: 8.7%

IBU: 85

Pairs Best With: Philly Cheese Steak Panini 

Why It Slaps: This is an IPA that is almost as aggressive as Philly fans–almost. It’s incredibly hoppy with subtle hints of citrus and tang. You’re not going to need more than a few of these to accomplish your mission, whatever that may be. Victory Brewing Company was founded by two lifelong best friends, and you can practically taste the loyalty in this beer with each sip. 

Review: “I like this. It helps me not feel feelings.”
