S15E05: Beer Styles: The Incredible IPA



brunswick beer collective ipa india pale ale



PODCAST | Does this beer taste hoppy to you? In this episode, we explore the origins and the modern takes on the humble India Pale Ale. It’s a chance for us to muddle through history as we discuss how this beer made its mark on the world, and do so in a way that is surely missing key details. We also discover some incredibly interesting beer cans, work out the point when an IPA becomes an ‘IPA’, and try to understand what a West Coast IPA really is.

This episode is part of our season covering the greatest, or sometimes just the most popular, beer styles of the world.

Chris is an editor, writer, and occasional novelist who in a former life published online magazines for a living while working out of obscure coffee shops. He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells. He is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast dedicated to the lighter side of craft beer.
