The brewers at Gritty’s in Freeport have whipped up a Wheat IPA called “WHIPA.” Wheat beers tend to be mild, but the WHIPA blends that wheat beer mildness with a zippy IPA for a unique taste we’re sure you’ll enjoy.
The guys used 3 different wheat malts: Light, Dark and Torrefied with Pale and Munich Malts and 5 different hops: Citra, Cascade, Willamette, Northern Brewer and Lemon Drop. The result is an unfiltered wheat IPA with a hazy pale color and an amazing taste coming in at 7% ABV.
Gritty’s India Pale Lager is still on tap now – a seasonal lager for your enjoyment and sharing.
Gritty’s IPL is a well-balanced, crisp, copper colored lager with a hops forward taste. A good balance of hops aroma and malt. It’s a flavorful easy-drinking beer. Come by for a pint or three…
