Sixpack of the Week: Otter Creek/Lawson’s Finest Liquids Double or Nothing

SIXPACK SEZ: The second collaboration between Otter Creek’s Mike Gerhart and Sean Lawson of Lawson’s Finest Liquids is the mirror opposite of their first, bold, crisp Double Dose IPA. This one’s sweet (thanks to a huge malt bill plus brown sugar, candi sugar and Vermont maple syrup) and smooth. Usually “double or nothing” is the last bet in a bad night of poker. I’m hoping this is far from the last collaboration between these two very talented brewers.
