Pro Am Imperial IPA
One time release. No longer available
This is a big, hoppy beer with lots of hop aroma and bitterness balanced by English pale ale malt. Unlike some Imperial IPAs that are on the edge of being unbalanced, Chris’ Imperial IPA has a wonderful blend of malt and hops. The featured hops are Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic.
There is a special category at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) for a very cool type of team effort and it is called the Pro-Am Category. Pro-Am beers are collaboration brews made in commercial breweries based on award-winning homebrew recipes. Chris Becker’s Imperial IPA won the Best-of-Show at the “1776: British Styles and their American Counterparts” homebrew competition earlier this year. The SBC Brew Crew and Chris teamed up to brew a 500 gallon batch of his tasty brew on July 15th.
Great with just about anything involving meat and cheese and light heat, try it with pulled-pork nachos!
