San Francisco, CA (January 10, 2017) – Today, Anchor Brewing Company announces the release of Liberty IPA™, a bold and modern twist on an original craft classic, Liberty Ale®. 



Like its predecessor, Liberty IPA (6.3% ABV) is made with two-row pale malt and Cascade hops.  It is the combination of Cascade with new hop varieties—Nelson Sauvin and El Dorado—that creates the mouthwateringly complex and robust aromas of pine and citrus in this crisp, American-style IPA.



“Liberty IPA is a revolutionary brew-—reimagined,” said Anchor Brewmaster Scott Ungermann.  “The beer is a bright straw golden color & boasts aromas of dank and resinous pine up front, with bold citrus and grapefruit notes on the back end.  You can really taste the assertive bitterness, with hints of a light biscuit malt base and a smooth, dry finish.  Liberty IPA is a celebration of the Cascade hopped IPA’s that Anchor first popularized back in 1975 and remain at the forefront of American craft beer trends.”



Liberty IPA is Anchor’s reimagining of the craft beer classic Liberty Ale, envisioned through the lens of today’s IPAs.  Liberty Ale was first brewed in 1975 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Paul Revere’s midnight ride, and was the first American IPA brewed after prohibition. This revolutionary forerunner of the modern IPA introduced America to the Cascade hop and the nearly lost art of dry-hopping, a steeping process to infuse beer with bold hop aromas.



Taking cues from the original Liberty Ale packaging, the newly designed Liberty IPA label features the bald eagle, a symbol of strength and freedom.



Liberty IPA is available starting January 2017 nationwide for a limited time in 6-pack bottles and on draught at select bars, restaurants, and stores as well as at the Anchor Brewing Taproom in San Francisco. You can find a brew near you by using the Anchor Beer Finder.
