Here’s a first peek at the label submitted to the TTB for Breaker Brewing Co 16-Ton IPA. The guys tell me 16-Ton will be available mainly in 22oz bottles with perhaps a few kegs. The beer comes in at 116 IBU with a strong malt backbone thanks to generous portions of Warrior, Nugget, Chinook and Columbus hops. Adding to that hop bouquet, the guys dry hopped with Cascade & Nugget and aged the beer with lightly toasted oak chips to get the final brew. 16-Ton will be bottle conditioned, unfiltered, un-pasteurized AND 10.6% ABV. Look for Breaker Brewing 16-Ton IPA to be available in a few weeks and stay tuned here and breakerbrewingcompany.com for the latest details.
As the bottle says, “After dealing with your day’s Sixteen Tons, kick back and relax with this Double IPA and let your worries blissfully fade away.”
