IPAs have become similar to the Marvel Universe: a blockbuster franchise with one creative spinoff after another. West Coast, New England, hazy, session, black, brut, cold … The IPA hits keep coming.
In celebration of National IPA Day, Firestone Walker is here to help you explore the IPA style in all of its enduring and eclectic glory, by way of the new “Beer Talk” series starring Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. Landing today is the latest episode featuring Firestone Walker’s Hopnosis and the emergence of the cold IPA phenomenon.
Recognized as one of the nation’s foremost IPA brewers, Firestone Walker helped set the pace for the West Coast IPA revolution starting with Union Jack in 2006. Since then, a string of milestone beers has followed, including Wookey Jack Black Rye IPA, Easy Jack Session IPA, Mind Haze IPA and, most recently, Hopnosis Cold IPA.
Check out these earlier episodes of “Beer Talk” to learn more about these beers and their respective IPA sub-styles. Follow @firestonewalker and stay tuned for future episodes, and in the meantime pour one out for National IPA Day.
