Magwitch IPA Tapping

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!
