A Note on This Beer
Hop Chorus: Citra, Mosaic, and Amarillo Hops sing out in papaya and guava flavors, punctuated by notes of pine and vanilla. A pineapple kush baseline deepens the brew to seriously succulent levels. Melodious Mouthfeel: Flaked oats, flaked rye, and wheat in the base make for a pillowy smooth body!
Nestled away in a residential corner of West Seattle is a tiny little building – the kind of building people would drive right past were it not for two things: the 100-year-old cow statue on top, and the almost 2-year-old brewery inside.
This is Best of Hands Barrelhouse. As The Washington Beer Blog notes, this small-batch brewery flies so under the radar that it’s practically a local neighborhood secret. They also urge craft fans to “put it on your shortlist because it is worth the trip.”
I get it. I live in Seattle, and today’s Wordless Chorus is only the third beer – and the second NEIPA – I’ve managed to get my hands on for Tavour from these underground brewing rock stars!
With every juicy-smooth sip, I sincerely hope it won’t be the last. In the meantime, if you’re reading this, it means you have the chance to taste these rising Pacific Northwest hop masters even before many of my fellow Seattleites.
With Tavour, it's easy to beer it forward! Just head over to Tavour.com/gifts to send a gift box or gift card to the craft beer lover in your life. Cheers!
