Monday, July 18th 2022:  Gigantic Brewing, in conjunction with Barley Brown’s Beer in Baker City, OR, present Hipster Cowboy IPA, a cool kid meets country boy collaboration. Inspired by big skies and Bloodshot Records, this IPA will kick your cowboy boots up a notch higher.

“We each brought our own unique styles to form a true Oregonian IPA, representing both east and west, cowboy and hipster”, says Gigantic Brewmaster Ben Love.

We teamed up with our friends from Barley Browns to lasso the finest Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops on god’s green earth to make this IPA. This awesome blend of citrus hops, touch of tropical fruit, with a little bit of pine is just what your summer tap list desires. Hipster Cowboy is a laid back, effortlessly cool brew best enjoyed on your back porch or front stoop.

We have had the pleasure of working with artist Ben Walker many times over the years. You might remember him from the Catch 23 Experimental IPA label and our collaboration with Boneyard called We Don’t Need No Stinking Hops. When he’s not designing beer labels, he is creating show posters for comedians like Dana Gould and Maria Bamford, he is creating animation for the Adam Carolla show, and painting original portraits for several comedians from the legendary Cobb’s Comedy Club in San Francisco. Check out his IG @benwalkerstorey
