During the brew day at our Factory in Emu Plains for this special collab with our friends Cloudburst (Seattle, WA) and Wildflower (Marrickville, NSW), we were discussing how, logically, we should call the beer 'umbrella' because:
- Cloudburst = rain
- We used wet hops from HPA
- The wet hops are called Ella (-ella, eh, eh, eh)...
And then Steve announced that in his native tongue (American), umbrellas are called 'bumbershoots'. That's the moment we realised we weren't just working with an inimitable wet-hop brewer but also someone who could probably smash us at Scrabble, too.
