Beer #46 - Easy Weezy / Weezledog

Beer #46 - W/C 11 January 2016


Weezledog is Mark Jackman with a little help from his wife Marie (accounts) and daughter Ruby (moral support). Right now Mark creates the beer, designs the labels, runs the website, marketing, sales, deliveries... You get the idea. In his spare time he is the brewer at Black Sands. Like most brewers he began as an enthusiastic home-brewer and, wonderfully, Mark shares the recipes for each beer in the range. Keeping it in the family, the name Weezledog came from Mark's nick name for Marie. 


Easy Weezy is a full on, heavily hopped American style IPA but with a slightly lower ABV that is often found in beers of this style. The malt profile is solid and plays second fiddle to the deliciously fresh and bitter NZ hop showcase. In fact, Easy Weezy is brewed with more hops than are usually used in double IPA's. From the Motueke you'll get lemon citrus and lots of tropical fruit. Pacifica gives more citrus with notes of orange marmalade. If you want to try your hand at brewing your own, you can find the recipe HERE. Being a romantic Yorkshireman, Mark put a picture of his wife on the Easy Weezy label. We might well be in love with this IPA but fortunately our relationship with beer isn't monogamous...
