This Thursday, Bowling Green gets it’s first chance to taste the Schlafly American IPA at Bowling Green Pipe and Cigar’s Release Party for the beer. Schlafly’s American IPA has big, bold hop flavor from American-grown hops and is deep golden and full bodied. Made with large quantities of 2 row and Crystal malted barley, this beer is an American, scaled-up version of its cousin style, English IPA. Flavored with the American hops, Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe, this beer has pronounced bitterness and very prominent aromas of citrus and fruit.
As American consumers developed a taste for highly bitter beers, craft brewers adapted their methods accordingly. American craft brewers adopted the IPA style, making it unique with the use of American hops. We make an annual pilgrimage to the Pacific Northwest to procure the large amount of American hops necessary to make this big hop beer.
They’ll be doing 16oz draft pours for $5 and will surely come up with a cigar special as well.
