Flight with Bites: American IPA vs English IPA

Señor Wong & MN Beer Activists are proud to bring the next event in our Flight with Bites pairing series. This time around we are tasting American IPA and English-Style IPA paired with hand crafted small plates from Chef Cody Monson.

Featured Beer Style: American IPA vs English-Style IPA

Stone IPA (CA)  – American IPA
COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look up “hops” in the dictionary and you’ll see a picture of Stone IPA! “Dry-hopped” for an extra two weeks, this unique process gives our IPA its bountiful hop aroma and rich hop flavor. A full 70+ IBUs (International Bitterness Units) creates this beer’s crisp and refreshing bitter character.

Founders All Day IPA (MI) – American IPA
COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer you’ve been waiting for. Keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatic and a clean finish. The perfect reward for an honest day’s work and the ultimate companion to celebrate life’s simple pleasures.

Brooklyn East India Pale Ale (NY) – English IPA
COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn East India Pale Ale, originally a summer seasonal, has been getting raves since becoming a year round offering in 1996. Garrett Oliver, a student of English brewing and beer history, uses English malts and hops to brew his EIPA in the classic, heavily-hopped style of the 19th century beers created for British soldiers serving in India.

Goose Island IPA (IL) – English IPA
COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lover’s dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one you’ll remember.
