Tristan McCoy and Kyle Jung: British Bitter – Strong Bitter

Tacoma, WA

How long have you been home brewing?

I have been brewing for four and a half years now with my best friend of over 15 years: Kyle Jung. We started in late 2011 when his sister gave him a Mr. Beer Kit for his birthday. Our first beer tasted like soap and green apples, but we drank it anyway.

What is your favorite Ballast Point beer?

Horachata Victory at Sea!

What was the inspiration for your winning regional beer?

Kyle and I have always liked that beer and like the malt-forward, earthy, piney hop flavored beers which is ironic since we live in the PNW, the land of the hops. It is the recipe we have been working on the most since we started brewing.
