Southern Tier Zero Mile


Brewed by Southern Tier Brewing Company
Lakewood, New York USA
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) | Ratings: 3 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7.2%
Brewed for Atlanta Beer WeekBefore there was an Atlanta, there was only the terminus of the Western and Atlantic Railroad. That was quite a while ago and proved to be the impetus for the city. Atlanta has grown by leaps and bounds in the decades that have passed. We’ve dedicated a beer to the city, a fresh hopped India Pale Ale we call Zero Mile. What is a fresh hopped beer? As the name suggests, the hops are fresh–these were picked just 4 hours before being dumped into the brewing process. We used 575 pounds of locally grown hops including centennial, cascade, magnum, chinook and nuggest to brew a mere 30 barrels. That’s over 19 pounds of hops in every barrel! One would expect this to be outrageously bitter, but you’ll find the bitterness to be balanced by sweet malts. It’s a bigger beer at 7.2% abv, but we think you’ll be on the right track after your first sip.
