Catawba Releases Mardi Gras Wild IPA

 Catawba will release a special Barrel Aged Wild IPA (5.5 percent ABV) as part of their Mardi Gras celebration. This beer began its parade twelve months ago as a much tamer session IPA, before spending a year with Brettanomycees in oak barrels. After aging, the beer was dry-hopped, lending ripe tropical fruit and citrus peel flavors to the earthy farmhouse funk of a traditional wild ale, with an ever-so-subtle hint of bourbon.

Catawba Brewing Releases Small Batch Belgian Tripel

Catawba’s Belgian Tripel was inspired by the strong golden ales brewed by the Trappist monks of Flanders and Wallonia. The style is the newest addition to the abbey ale trinity (Dubbel, Tripel, Quadruple), having first appeared at Westmalle Abbey in the 1930s. It was said to be Belgium’s response to the growing popularity of pale colored beers in Europe. However, unlike the prevailing light lagers of the time, the Belgian Tripel utilizes a unique yeast strain, and roughly three times the malt of a standard “Single” – hence the name. The result is a style that helped elevate Belgian beer to a pinnacle once reserved only for the best wines of France or Italy.

Blood Orange IPA (6.5% ABV) is the latest in Catawba’s new series of fruited hoppy beers, which began with last month’s popular Pineapple IPA. Ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavors marry perfectly with the aroma and flavor notes of fresh West Coast hops. Brewed with flaked wheat in the mash, this India Pale Ale features the soft mouthfeel and juicy character associated with New England IPAs. Citrus-forward hops were selected for both the whirlpool and dry-hopping, with a final addition of over 150 lbs of real blood orange puree. The result is a citrus bomb of an IPA light in body and incredibly drinkable at only 55 IBUs.
