Style: English Pale Ale | Ratings: 19 | Alcohol: 5.9%
EAST INDIA PALE ALE, 1879, YORKSHIRE, ENGLAND: Hereís the new one! We couldnít help but want to brew a proper period version of the beer that started the craft beer movement here in the US and Ron came up with a brewsheet that launched many OUAT firsts. Not only does this one use English hops as would be expected, but also hops from Germany (including hops from Alsace that was only recently ceded to Germany from France) and California. Yes, you heard that correctly. We donít even grow hops in California these days so it was surprise to see a Yorkshire brewery using them in the 19th century. First ever use of American hops in a OUAT beer.
