Hops & Grain Greenhouse IPA

After brewing over 18 different versions of an IPA over the past two years, Hops & Grain Brewery has released its Greenhouse IPA. Starting this week, Hops & Grain loyalists will be able to pick up the canned IPA in select retail stores. The IPA joins Alt-eration, Pale Dog, and Zoe. H&G will utilize different hop varieties for each release of the Greenhouse IPA. One release per month, 12 releases per year - each with an intentional variance. “We’ve been advocates of hops since day one at Hops & Grain and since we have a hard time deciding which one we like the best, we decided to create an IPA series that celebrates the wondrous contributions that different hop varieties provide. Each release will showcase different hop varieties while maintaining the exact same grain bill, water profile, yeast strain, and kettle hop additions. The only change we make for each release is with dry-hopping that is done after fermentation causing each release to be dynamically different in flavor and aroma,” says owner Josh Hare of the new brew.

Thurs., Jan. 16 at 7pm: Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden
Fri., Jan. 17 at 6pm: Draught House Pub & Brewery
