Collaborating with them has allowed us to infuse our distinct Gigantic touch into this exciting project,” stated Van Havig, co-founder of Gigantic Brewing. “Big Idea is the result of our mutual respect for innovation and a true testament to the creativity and camaraderie within our vibrant craft beer community.”
Big Idea is crafted with a meticulous blend of renowned hops, including Calista, Citra, Crystal, Motueka, and Simcoe.
