Chris Elliott, Chief Brewing Officer of Wild Leap Brew Co.

Join The Beer Connoisseur for our Livestream Happy Hour and weekly Podcast with today's featured brewer Chris Elliott, Chief Brewing Officer of Wild Leap Brew Co. in LaGrange, Georgia. Journey through a guided tasting of some of the latest highly rated and rare beers made available to our Beer Buyers Club members.

This unique event allows BC’s Beer Buyers Club members to taste and discuss these hard-to-find beers with fellow connoisseurs and engage in an in-depth Q&A with the brewers themselves.

In this episode, Chris discusses Truck Chaser Lemon Ice, an 8.1% ABV limited release Fruited Double IPA that scored 4.02 out of 5 points on Untappd.

According to the brewery, the beer "blends fresh lemon, vanilla bean and milk sugar to taste like a frozen lemon Italian ice. Though lighthearted in its appearance, the Truck Chaser Series was created as a salute to Wild Leap’s Chief Brewing Officer, Chris Elliott’s past career in the ice cream industry."
