History

By the 1790’s the British were established in India and needed beer, which was considered a staple in every household. India, however, presented serious problems for brewers. Hot temperatures, poor water and short supplies of basic ingredients made it impossible to brew beer. Attempts to ship beer out of Britain to Calcutta failed.

George Hodgson of London produced a pale ale of greater strength and bitterness than those he sold in London. The hops helped protect the beer from spoilage, as did the increased alcohol content. Hodgson’s India Ale arrived in Calcutta in fine shape-clear, strong, and bitter, with a big, resinous hop aroma.  The word spread of India Pale Ale  and people throughout England and the United States were clamoring for this wonderful new beer. The rage lasted through 1970’s, but lost steam in the 1980’s and became just another name for low alcohol bitters.

As craft beer has emerged and grown, so has IPA! IPA has helped grow Craft Beer to what it is currently today. There are now many shapes and forms of IPA, but they all share bright aromatic hop aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine.  Hop flavor coats the tongue and these beers finish with an assertive, but balanced bitterness.      

pFriem Hazy Sabro IPA is our latest adventure into the mysterious world of New England IPA. Inspired by the best examples of the style we’ve enjoyed, it features a soft, round mouthfeel courtesy of the Maris Otter and Oat-filled base, and triumphantly tropical aromas thanks to the lovely trifecta of Mosaic, Citra and one of the most exciting new hops on the market, Sabro. Cheers!

Tasting Notes

Pours a luminescent mandarin with a merengue foam. Huge tropical aromas leap from the glass. Papaya, key lime, peach, and cantaloupe lead to flavors of citrus compote, nectarine and lychee before a long and lingering sweet grapefruit finish. 

Food Pairings

Rich and hearty burgers, French fries and complex pizzas. Aged cheddar cheese, aged meats, and pickled vegetables. Indian cuisine that is spice forward and balanced by yogurt and cream-based sauces.
