FERNIE, BC – Fernie Brewing has announced the launch of a new beer in its bimonthly Limited Release IPA series.
Hit the Deck New England IPA is a 6.7% abv and 50 IBU ale described as follows:
New England IPAs are characterized by their cloudiness and smooth, creamy finish. This brew has a tropical and fruity aroma that will make any beer drinker dream of the rocky shores and salty seas of the East Coast. The name is twofold, as Hit the Deck aims to capture the true essence of the East Coast – long days at sea, unparalleled ocean storms, and a long history of cod fishing. For those of us nestled in the Rocky Mountains, miles from the sea, Hit the Deck takes a more literal meaning – enjoying a beer on the wooden planks of the deck in our backyard.
Hit The Deck is out now in 650 ml bottles and on tap at select locations in British Columbia, and will be rolling out in Alberta throughout June, and into Manitoba in July. It will be followed in the series by another new beer – Old Stumpy Pine IPA – which is due out in August.
