The India Pale Ale we brew is our version of a brewing legacy. IPA’s name hails from its colonial roots. British soldiers in India didn’t have access to fresh beer, and the malty ales they attempted to take onboard their ships would soon go stale. By adding generous amounts of hops, they found the beers would better survive the voyage, thus a new style was born.
At Southern Tier, we’ve brewed our IPA since 2002. It is a beer with a vigorous hop profile, well-balanced malt background and a medium body. Our IPA is most akin to an English style IPA and is an intrepid ale that’s triple-hopped on its journey to your glass for a truly aromatic experience
