For those of you who don’t know, former Red Sox stud Kevin Youkilis has dedicated his post-baseball life to an honorable and enviable pursuit; brewing delicious delicious beer.
Youk set up shop in southern Cali with his venture, Loma Brewery. I hope to one day crush some suds with the dirt dog himself out in Cali, but until then I’ll just have to hunt down a couple of his brews myself. I feared that would be a bigger challenge than my goal of collecting all the Ommegang Game of Thrones beers.
However, Youk recently partnered with local beer giant, Harpoon, to start distributing his craft creations this fall and I am stoked.

As we all know, a great beer is about 51% taste and 49% creative name. Look no further than 21st Amendment Brewery’s Hell or High Watermelon or Ruckus Brewing Company’s Hoptimus Prime.
Youk’s signature beer? Greek God of Hops.
To be honest, this beer could taste like paint and I would still buy it.
PS – As a BJJ guy, this is another A+ beer name.
We finally brewed a Hazy IPA. And we think it’s dangerously delicious. With pineapple, orange, and passion fruit aromas, a soft mouthfeel, and very little bitterness at the end. On tap tomorrow at @LomaBrew!!! #LomaBrew #JewJitsu #HazyIPA #ComeGetSome pic.twitter.com/Z18c7aL49b
