Beavertown vs Salt Beer Factory: Mercury Session IPA (330ml)

Beavertown vs Glass House: Venus IPL (330ml)
Brewed in collaboration with Glasshouse for our 8th birthday we wanted to make a juicy IPL. Using German hops as a nod to traditional lagers and the addition of more modern tropical hops in the dry hop has given us a drinkable ‘crispy boy’ with a more hop forward IPA character. Still true to itself as a lager, but bolder like an IPA. Fermented cold and lagered for 6-8 weeks the beer was dry hopped with 7g/L Callista, Loral, El Dorado, Azzaca and Idaho Gem – its light, fruity and drinkable. Light and drinkable with a delicate and fruity hop character. Notes of melon and pineapple add an upfront juicy aroma whilst the use of traditional hops and lagering techniques give the beer a mellow lager backbone.
