Half-arsed attempt at IPA

bbc10307a065f466da2e6d78f67500f8_93354…beats a no-arsed attempt. India Pale Ale was fermented at sea, over the course of the 100-day voyage to India. The brew’s peculiarities — higher levels of alcohol and hops — were necessary to preserve it on the journey. Now, of course, breweries just do it as best they can on dry land because really, why take beer on a sea cruise if you don’t have to? Well the noble Scots at BrewDog decided to do it the old way just because. They put their IPA on a mackerel trawler for over 50 days, which is well shy of 100 but over 50 days than anyone else. It’ll be bottled next month.
