“I wholeheartedly believe that BlackStack Brewing should be a top contender in the beer world. Hands down, the brewery is making some of the best beers in today’s elevated, ultra-competitive category: the infamous IPA. The singles, doubles, and triples hit on multiple layers and showcase very specific combinations of hops. It’s one of the very few breweries I actually spend money on without a second thought. I got nothing but the utmost appreciation and respect for their team, as they actually challenge us and the industry and serve as inspiration to do better.” —Sam Green, head brewer, Untitled Art, Waunakee, Wis.
