Gigantic Brewing's badass lineup of label art is individually created by a different artist who is given complete creative freedom. You won't be disappointed by the beer contained within. Founded by Ben Love (formerly of Pacific City's Pelican Brewing and Hopworks Urban Brewery) and joined by head brewer Van Havig (Rock Bottom), the brewery lives up to its moniker with a hefty lineup of strong, hoppy beers. Though everything but the internationally distributed Gigantic IPA is technically considered seasonal, popular brews occasionally make encore appearances and are worth catching when available, like the toasty, slightly sour Ume Umai, brewed with black rice and plum.
Drink This: The Pipewrench IPA, aged in gin barrels, is an herbaceous, floral delight.
