Recipe: Southern Grist [Insert Juicy Pun]

Southern Grist first brewed Insert Juicy Pun as a “jacked up” version of its Mixed Greens hazy IPA, “with an irresponsible amount of Galaxy, Mosaic, and Citra hops,” the brewery says. “We taste strong notes of orange pulp, papaya, pineapple, and peach.”

Nashville’s Southern Grist has earned a strong reputation for its popular, big-flavored hazy IPAs, fruit beers, milk stouts, and more. For much more about their approach to packing character into these beers—while constantly making intentional adjustments to improve quality, balance, and drinkability—check out CB&B Podcast Episode 302 with Jared Welch, Southern Grist’s cofounder and production manager.

Exclusively for our All Access subscribers, Welch and team share this homebrew-scale recipe for one of their most beloved beers, the lush and strong hazy double IPA called [Insert Pun Here]. “We couldn’t continue this popular trend and think of just one clever witticism to describe the awesome ‘juice’ characteristics of this new beer,” the brewery says, “so we basically named it all of them.”

One of their top sellers, this beer also scored well with our Craft Beer & Brewing blind review panel. “A nice hop funk in the best way,” our judges said. “Smooth body and flavor with more orange than diesel. A bit sweet, but enough bitterness to balance. Very full mouthfeel.”

Here was the take from our editors: “Bold and bright with appealing, chunky, orange-and-pineapple power chords in the aroma. The lightly bitter pineapple stretches out the flavor with an offbeat and cool rhythm that culminates in a pineapple-lime tart and structured breakdown as you swallow.”
