Cellarman's Reserve IPA
India Pale Ale (IPA)
A classic American-style IPA is good any time of the year, and thats why we are happy to bring you our Cellarman’s Reserve Single Hop IPA Series with year-round availability. In order to highlight the hops, the base of the beer is a simple recipe comprised only of 2-row and Munich malts. A 7% abv gives us just the right amount of balance for 65 IBUs of hoppy goodness coming from using only one single hop varietal for bittering, flavor, and dry-hopping additions. Next comes the Martin House twist. While its availability is year-round, the hops we use will not be. From time to time, whenever our Cellarmen feel like it, we’ll switch out that single hop. While the beer overall will remain the same, the drinker will get to experience the nuances of each hop varietal.
For our head-brewer, Cody Martin, homebrewing pushed him so deep into beer culture that starting Martin House was the next logical step in his beer-loving career. He’s not alone. There are countless other head-brewers both big and small in the brewing world that started with a bucket in their garage. Ask around the DFW brewing community, and you’ll find several more examples right here in our backyard. Homebrewing is the AAA league of craft brewers. If you’re a beer lover and still haven’t tried your hand at brewing, our cellar men strongly recommend it. It will bring a new level of appreciation and understanding for beer. Furthermore, we would encourage anyone reading this to check out a local homebrew club for help getting started. Look below for a homebrew version of the Cellarmen’s Reserve IPA.
