I’ve been seeing more and more activity coming out of the Tied House Brewery in San Jose so it was interesting to see this new beer that is actually brewed by Tied House for Irondale Brewing (Monterey, CA). This is named after the Hotel Irondale and it’s the second brew to be bottled for Irondale (following Swanton Rea’s Double Chocolate Stout). According to the company’s website, Tres Vieux means “very old style” IPA and is meant to be “
reminiscent of Beers brewed for European Landed Gentry - the Gentlemen Land Owners of the 16th Century. An IPA so rich it’s like money in a bottle.” (16.9oz 7% ABV)
As a bonus I’ve also included the Tied House Flemish-Style Sour Ale 22oz package just approved today also. (7% ABV) and the Hermitage Ale of the IMP (brewed by Tied House also)—Imperial IPA 8% ABV).
