In the latest issue of What’s Brewing magazine, we featured a Beer Me BC Deep Dive on Central City Brewers’ Street Legal IPA. Head brewer Gary Lohin revealed how their relatively expensive dealcoholization process saves the body of the beer. He mentioned that a Stout might be possible to do as well.
