Powell Brewery Releases 9th Anniversary Brett IPA

VANCOUVER, BC – Powell Brewery has announced the release of a new beer to mark the brewery’s 9th anniversary:

9th Anniversary IPA Aged with Brettanomyces (5.5% abv):

We started out brewing an IPA, fermented it as normal. Once fermentation was complete we added three strains of Brettanomyces and let it eat away at the residual sugars for a few months. Once the Brettanomyces completed it’s secondary fermentation we dry-hopped the beer with Amarillo, Citra, and Idaho 7 hops. We proceeded to can condition the beer for a few extra months until it was ready to drink. The result is an IPA with lots of funky barnyard character, aromas and flavours of stone fruit, tropical fruit, and a bit of citrus.

9th Anniversary IPA will be released at 2:00 PM today (December 15th) at the Powell Brewery taproom and store, and for delivery via BeerVan.
