In the 1700s one crafty brewer discovered that a healthy dose of hops and an increased alcohol content preserved his ales during the long voyage to India (as depicted in our label) to quench the thirst of British troops. Today, we tip our hat to that historic innovation by brewing Colorado’s hoppiest pale ale. Avery IPA demands to be poured into your favorite glass to truly appreciate the citrusy, floral bouquet and the rich, malty finish. Beer Style: India Pale Ale Hop Variety: Columbus, Chinook, Cascade and Centennial Malt Variety: Two-row barley, Munich 10L, caramel 120L OG: 1.058 ABV: 6.5% IBUs: 69 Color:Golden Food pairing: Seafood dishes such as ahi tuna or seared scallops are a great match, as are creamy pasta dishes like fettucini alfredo or pasta carbonara. The acidity and hop bitterness of Avery IPA will cut through creamy flavors and textures, providing balance to the pairing.
