Hess Anno Unum Belgian-Style Oaked India Pale Ale


Brewed by Mike Hess Brewing Company
San Diego, California USA
Style: Belgian Strong Ale | Ratings: 7 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 9.2%
Happy birthday to us! The beer you are holding, Anno Unum, represents a significant milestone - it is the first in what we expect to be a long line of Hess Brewing’s Anno-series birthday celebration beers. We opened our doors one year ago as San Diego’s first production nano-brewery and now we’ve poured everything we have into this bottle. You hold in your hand a beer that honors the tradition of craft brewing and exemplifies the reputation we’ve worked so hard to garner - a reputation for delicious, well-balanced craft brews. What is Anno Unum? Big. Belgian-Style. Hoppy. Unexpected. Uniquely Hess. It is, like everything we brew, Great Beer. No Exceptions. No Excuses. Belgian-style IPA made with Pilsner, Rye & Munich malts, Chinook and Falconer’s Flight hops, San Diego water, yeast and a whole lot of love.
