5 Paddles Brewing & Bad Apple Brewhouse Release 321 IPA for Durham Down Syndrome Association

WHITBY, ON5 Paddles Brewing has announce the release of a new beer brewed in collaboration with Nova Scotia’s Bad Apple Brewhouse, with proceeds set to go to a charity that is close to the hearts of both breweries.

321 IPA was created by Mike Bray of 5 Paddles and Jeff Saunders of Bad Apple in honour of their respective children, Maggie and Hunter, both of whom have versions of Down Syndrome.

Named after the fact that the disorder is caused by presence of a third copy of chromosome 21, the beer is described as follows:

321 is a west-coast style IPA with intense late hop and dry hop additions. This beer expresses aromas of pine and resin. On the palate, expect a crisp mouthfeel with pine and resin notes and moderate bitterness.

321 is available now in 650 ml bottles at 5 Paddles, with $1 from each bottle sold to be donated to the Durham Down Syndrome Association, an organization that “supports those living with Down syndrome, their families, and community through encouraging and promoting inclusion, participation, and respect within the Durham region.”
