You don’t age your bread (also made of barley) you eat it steaming, straight out of the oven. Drink beer fresh, go back, buy some more and drink that fresh too.
What makes IPA’s so exciting to drink are the hops. Hops are a flower picked annually in both hemispheres roughly 6 months apart. Once picked they deteriorate with exposure to time, oxygen, light & heat. So if an IPA is the same recipe all year round, you may be drinking hops over 12 months old.
There are very few beers that improve with age (that’s another story for another time) but IPA’s and in particular 4 Pines philosophy on its own IPA is all about FRESHNESS and IN SEASON.
FRESHNESS: We make just enough of 4 Pines IPA at once and make sure it is sent out of our brewery to bottle shops and pubs straight away, to do our part to ensure that only the very freshest IPA is reaching thirsty IPA drinkers.
IN-SEASON: We ensure that every 6 months around the time of the latest hop harvest (northern or southern hemisphere) we are constantly evolving our IPA recipe to ensure there is a focus on putting the freshest hops from around the globe in your glass. Each new recipe is distinguished by the seasonal release number.
