Re-entering the ring after a long hiatus – Big A DIPA! Just in time for Smuttynose’s 30th anniversary, we’re bring back one of the very first DIPAs to ever grace New England store shelves. Award-winning Big A was originally created for our 22oz. Big Beer Series, but eventually evolved into one of our highest-rated and hardest-to-find year round beers. This heavy hitter hits all the right notes with heavy hop notes layered on top of a solid malt backbone. Grab yours before it heads back into retirement!
