Andrew Sanders shares the homebrew recipe for this west coast-style IPA from his show Pop Culture Brews–a podcast with his pal Tyler about pop culture and the beer it inspires.
Twin Pines IPA is made for Back to the Future and honors the Twin Pines Mall, which later becomes Lone Pine Mall.
“This used to be Twin Pines Mall in the 1985 I knew first time around. But when I went back, I accidentally ran over one of the farmer’s pines. I guess that’s why they call it Lone Pine Mall now.” – Marty McFly
Little did Marty know, this would also trigger a series of events to inspire this homebrew recipe. Great Scott!
