Anderson Valley Extra Dry Brut IPA joins the brewery’s lineup year-round this month.
India pale ales have dominated craft beer sales for years. Every few years, a new trend surfaces within the India pale ale category. There’s been Black IPAs, and Belgian IPAs, but lately, it’s the hazy IPA/milkshake IPA fad and the quickly rising “brut IPA”.
The style is inspired by champagne and is loosely intended to be dry and effervescent like it’s namesake beverage. Anderson Valley’s Brut IPA is first and foremost dry, brewed and fermented with almost no residual sugars. The brewery used Chinook, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops to impart clean citrus flavors with low bitterness.
Anderson Valley Extra Dry Brut IPA is hitting shelves nationally in 12-ounce cans over the next few weeks, year-round.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: Late January 2019
