Ides of February 2016 – The Henderson Cup – Raspberry Black IPA
7% | By the Glass $6.25 | 650 ml bottle $8.95 | 2l Growler $20
The Henderson Cup started as an idea to celebrate the creativity and ingenuity of home brewers in our city. Each year we seek out the best beers and crown one the brewers Henderson Cup Champion. The reward: $1000 + the opportunity to create a beer with us for brewing and release as the Ides of February.
Our winner this year is Ed Hitchcock. Ed is an award winning, long time home brewer who returned to the hobby after a hiatus of nearly two decades. Like Rip Van Winkle, he has found himself in a brave new world of ingredients and techniques to explore. The Henderson Cup winning beer was achieved with a raspberry Lambic style ale, aged patiently for 22 years. The Ides of February is a Raspberry Black IPA which brings to life the spirit of his winning Lambic in a more reasonable time.
