New Beer! (This time its me)…

Media Release

“We’ve had Rare Breeds (seasonals), we’ve had Cross Breeds (collaborations), well here is the first ever In-breed! My mates have been telling me for years thats what I am. Here it is,” writes Tom Delmont.

“The In-breed Delmont West Coast India Pale Ale! American IPA, new world IPA, ridiculously hoppy but dangerously clean and drinkable.

“The guys inially were only going to do a few kegs but they loved the beer so much its graduated to a longneck release! I planned out the recipe and knew immediately what style of beer I wanted to make. No mid-strength, no session IPA’s, its gotta be a full blown American IPA for me. Stoked!”
