Vale Brewing has released the second beer in its new Fox Hat Brewing range.
Fox Hat metric IPA pays “lighthearted and belated” homage to the move from the imperial to the metric system almost 50 years ago, according to Vale head brewer Jeff Wright.
“Malt has long been weighed in kilograms rather than pounds, beer brewed in litres rather than gallons… and we thought a beer that’s full of uncomplicated metric goodness, in hops, malt and alcohol warmth, was called for.
“The result is Fox Hat metric IPA, measuring a whopping 80 on the International Bitterness Unit (IBU) scale, boasting seven per cent alcohol by volume and offering a solid head with a slight green tinge and simple resinous pine and fruit aromas.”
It follows debutante Fox Hat Phat Mongrel – a nitro-charged American-style oatmeal stout – in the new range, which was revealed by Wright on Radio Brews News in recent months.
Both products, available in kegs, will be pouring this Thursday June 26 at Fox Hat Brewing’s ‘Our Shout’ at Udaberri on Leigh Street, Adelaide, between 6 and 7pm.
