From Captain Lawrence:
Alt IPA joins the line-up as our new seasonal Winter Ale. Brewed with Chinook, Cascade, Simcoe, and Citra hops, then dry hopped with Mosaic and Cascade, this bold and hoppy ale is perfect for winter enjoyment. Weighing in at 5.9% ABV, with a 60 on the IBU chart, the Alt IPA re-imagines the clean German style. “It has an alt-style base that’s been Americanized,” says Scott of the Alt IPA’s big hoppy character.
ALT IPA is now available in bottles and on draft.
Sticking with that part of the world, Captain Lawrence also has a schwarzbier in the works. Translating to “black beer”, it’s a dark and roasty type of brew with an intriguingly bittersweet flavor profile. “We haven’t done it in the past. It’s a cool style of beer that we’re definitely excited about,” says Scott. “We’ll play around with lager yeast and try some interesting things.”
That one will be draft only, available toward the end of November.
