• “Holy hop oil! A QUAD IPA? Surprisingly smooth and not very bitter. Jam packed with my favorite hops, how could this NOT be awesome?...12.5% ABV and not boozy!” @Brian N.
  • “This might be the tastiest BlackStack brew to date, and definitely the most dangerous.” @Alex S.

It’s been three and a half years since the Johnson family opened up BlackStack Brewing. Their fans agree — what better way to celebrate three years and 500 batches of beer than with a hefty quadruple strength IPA!?

The brewers packed MURK MERCHANTS with an insane amount of hops — we’re talking Citra, Strata, Mosaic, Mosaic Cryo, Simcoe Cryo, Cashmere Cryo, HBC 692 AND Australian Galaxy! In case you weren’t counting, that’s EIGHT TYPES OF HOPS!

Each velvety sip drips with the flavors of succulent pineapples, juicy oranges, creamy mangoes, and zesty grapefruit — all from that hefty hop bill. And thanks to those smooth and supple Cryo cones, there’s barely a whisper of bitterness in this brew.

With a taste this easy-drinking, you could easily forget that it weighs in at 12.5% ABV!

So go ahead, crack open a can of this juicy booze bomb, and lift a toast to BlackStack! If you can resist the urge to chug it, that is.
