Originally, a British-style of beer, India Pale Ales has become a distinct American-style of craft beer. Northern Liberties IPA celebrates the heavy-hop brewing traditions, giving Moerlein Northern Liberties IPA a distinct floral-like aroma and a copper appearance, enhanced with balanced malt undertones to create a smooth, drinkable ale. The beer has an ABV of 6.3%, OG of 15.5 and IBU’s of 55. Moerlein Northern Liberties IPA will be available in six packs and draft beginning May 7th.
Local Cincinnati artist Jim Effler, commissioned by Christian Moerlein Brewing Company to paint the label artwork, displays a Liberty Maiden of Cincinnati marching triumphantly down Liberty St. uniting the gathering crowd in the pursuit of a life, liberty and happiness.
