Bridge Road Brewers
Bridge Road Dark Harvest Fresh Hop Black IPA
Brewery: Bridge Road Brewers / Mikkeller
Style: Black IPA
Format: 330ml Bottle
In Autumn 2012, we invited Mikkel Borg Bjergsø of Mikkeller to Beechworth. Together we made ‘The Dark Harvest’. We now brew this beer annually for our harvest festival, High Country Hops.
This IPA combines a complex and savoury malt bill with the unique flavours of freshly harvested hops from our ‘neighbour’s at Rostrevor hop garden. The 2020 vintage uses fresh Vic Secret hop cones, picked and added to the beer within 6 hours.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Perfect for colder months
A great collaboration from Bridge Road & Mikeller to produce a great hoppy experience from a dark IPA.
Excellent to drink around a fire & matches well with dark chocolate.
A beverage following more in the tradition of black beer than hoppy porter, this handy collaboration features a slightly toned-down 'roastiness' that sits rather gently on the palate, either freshly opened, or rested at room temperature. And though it may not compete directly with several of its black IPA contemporaries, this is an amiable addition to any beginner's quest for darker pale ales.
