Magwitch IPA will be tapped tonight at 6pm. There will be a private tapping for Mug Club members from 5-6pm in the Pub Room. We brewed Magwitch to be aged in barrels for a bottle release in July. The beer on tap tonight is the beer we had left after filling 4 oak barrels. There is only a small amount. It will be on tap for a limited amount of time.
Magwitch IPA is a historic English IPA. 100% English Pale Malt and 100% East Kent Golding Hops. We based the recipe off of recipes from the 1800s. Hense the name Magwitch. Magwitch is a character from Great Expectations, a Charles Dickens novel written in 1861.
The beer is refreshing in its simplicity. The beers malt sweetness lends way to fruity esters and hops, finishing dry. A fitting reminder of where America's most popular style came from!
Hope to see you in for a pint!
