In the recipe for Double Stolen Haze, we took advantage of the creamy properties of oatmeal, which we used in a really high amount – up to a quarter of the grist. The beer is thus really dense and delicate, which is a great basis for subsequent rich hopping with the American varieties Columbus, Mosaic, Amarillo and Citra. Expect a really intense citrus and stone fruit whirlwind of flavors. Brewing modern IPAs with Vašek Vomáčko is simply an experience that is a joy to share.
The Černý potoka brewery has become a legend on the Czech craft scene thanks to its steaming, fragrant IPA, and that was at a time when many Czech brewers were just getting their hands on the first modern beer styles. The story of Vašek Vomáčko and his brewery is a motivation for every brewer, because Vašek really rose from the homebrewing pot to the top of the Czech ratings and many of their beers have become domestic models for others. As a bonus, Vašek and his family, who often help him with the brewery, are a really great bunch full of enthusiasm and it’s always a pleasure to chat with them.
