Brouwhoeve IPA

Gold medal 2019 World Beer Awards

The beer is characterized by a fantastic fruity peach and citrus-like character. Aromatic hoppy with a soft pleasant bitterness. Astonishingly fresh, fruity smell of mango, powerful taste of citrus with bitter velvety aftertaste. Really a delicious and special beer.

Brouwhoeve's IPA, fruity and mouth-watering

IPA stands for India Pale Ale. More hops are added to this originally English type of beer than to pilsner. This results in more bitterness. You can also taste many fruity flavours, which nuance the bitter flavours again.

Brouwhoeve IPA is nice and hoppy

IPA owes its name, India Pale Ale, to the heyday of English colonialism. According to old stories, the British soldiers, who kept order in India, longed for their favourite beers from home. Moreover, every British soldier at that time was entitled to one pint of beer a day. Unfortunately, that beer never survived the sea voyage of 4 months at that time. The bright idea was to brew beer with a higher alcohol content and to add more hops so that it could be kept longer. Alcohol and hops are natural preservatives. This special meeting is precisely what is so addictive about IPA beer, so be careful when you start this special top-fermenting beer!

IPA Beer & Food

Meanwhile you can tell in a restaurant that you know where the name India Pale Ale comes from. IPA beer is a bitter beer because of the large amount of hops. Not to be feared, the hops also provide a fruity and tropical taste. Good, complementary flavours. IPA beer from Brouwhoeve drinks away:

  • A saucissus, bitterball, flame or other greasy snack! Hops break down the fat and make the taste of the dish more intense. At the same time, the intensity of the hop taste in the beer decreases, making it easier, thirst-quenching and quicker to drink away.
  • Chinese! Everyone knows. At Chinese we like to drink a beer. That tastes so good! Why? The same as with the sauces and bitterballs, Chinese is often greasy. By drinking a lager or IPA with it, the food tastes better and your beer is more thirst-quenching.
  • Curry and spicy dishes! It’s no coincidence that you choose a curry! You love delicious spicy and spicy! The hop enhances this spiciness! Therefore, enjoy intensely the extra flavour enhancer of the dish.
  • A spicy, old cheese! Strengthens that delicious, sharp side of the cheese!
