Grand Teton Releasing Teton Range IPA Year Round & New Brewmaster

27 March 2017

imageFrom Grand Teton:

After 18 months, 18 pilot batches and dozens of side projects with our pilot system, Teton Range IPA has been added to our year-round lineup.

For Teton Range IPA, Idaho grown and malted barley make up 90% of the grain bill. We use a variety of Idaho hops including one of our new favorites, Idaho 7. The combination of these unique hops makes Teton Range IPA an amazingly aromatic and flavorful beer. We focus on late hop additions in the kettle to boost the aroma and keep the bitterness low. Pungent aromas of tropical fruits like mango and papaya, hints of pine, hard candy and citrus rind are prominent. The flavor is juicy, like fresh squeezed tropical fruit with some pine in the background. The beer has a deep gold color and strong head retention. The crisp, balanced flavors of Teton Range IPA create a delicious, drinkable beer.

Teton Range IPA is available year-round in 1/6th and 1/2 barrel kegs and will be available in 12 oz. six-packs in select markets starting April 2017.

Max Shafer, 26, has been appointed Brewmaster of Grand Teton Brewing. Max grew up in Chicago and loved spending every summer in the Tetons with his grandparents. His passion for fishing, the mountains, and the outdoors led him to major in Conservation Biology in college. At the same time, his interest in homebrewing was sparked and he began actively experimenting with new recipes. Upon graduation, he once again spent the summer in the Tetons and met former Grand Teton Brewing Brewmaster, Rob Mullin. Max realized he could combine his two passions in one place and joined Grand Teton Brewing’s production team in August 2012.  He began the Barrel-Aging Program and quickly increased it from 12 barrels to 200 barrels today.  In order to increase his knowledge of the brewing world, Max attended the Siebel Institute of Technology in early 2016 and has since served as our Cellar Master. We are looking forward to great things from Max as Brewmaster!
