SMaSH beers originally grew out of the homebrew community, it stands for Single Malt and Single Hop. They’re a great way to get the essence of the malt and hop character and flavor profile. Usually, when you brew a beer you use a blend of malts and hops to achieve specific results. Different malts can add different flavors and textures to your beer, while different hops can have different levels of bittering acids, flavors, and essential oils that in combination can present a really cool experience to the drinker.
