Professor, you have been brewing almost longer than i have been alive, so i yield to your knowledge.  do you care to share your secret to having a quality ipa that can run out longer than six months?

genuine interest here.

It all comes down to your personal tastes and preferences.  I've had a lot of IPAs that were older than 6 months and still tasted great.  But my own preference is for IPA "styles" that are ready to drink when they're younger.


surely.  i had a pal send me a six month old pliny the elder because he wasn't going to drink it and it was before you could get an ipa in the state of mississippi.  it was good, but it wasn't PtE.

This is a crazy question... The IPA was created to keep beer "fresh" on the long trip from the UK to India for the troops there.  So the whole reason for the style was for it to
survive long periods of time.  However, the style in America has become a completely different animal.  We are obsessed with the hop aroma and flavor (And I am firmly intrenched
in the 'WE' in this sentence) which dissipates with time.  So is the beer OK... without a doubt it is!  Is it as flavorful and aromatic as the brewer intended... probably not.

I say ask for a taste.  You are the one serving it.  If it tastes OK to you, then by all means let it fly.  If you are not satisfied with the taste, then pass. 


i just didn't know if i was missing some sort of technique that would make a beer more hoppy than a commercial counterpart six months after bottling.

Not that I'm that much of a stickler for 'authenticity'  but IPA was, after all,  originally an aged style (aka, 'stock ale') to begin with.  I rarely drink my homebrewed IPA any younger than 8 months;  it's brewed with that factor in mind, and after the long aging it's hoppier and more aromatic than any modern commercial one I've yet tried.

i like your rule, and even coming from a beer starved state, i abide.  i don't consider it a disservice to the good people of mississippi because there are so few options regardless of date, but if i lived in an area where fresh ipa was easy to find, i'd think differently.  i'm sure some will disagree with me on this.

so, the executive producer calls me at 6:00 last night and says....."jason, i know the beer is not ready, but we are shooting the bar scene tomorrow after lunch" (they were going to use the beer as a prop, and then they weren't.  last night, they realized they were wanting to use it) "and i need a six pack of something with some fizz that looks like beer and i need it tomorrow at lunch time.  can you make this happen?"

of course i can make this happen......







so, we don't get many, and this is the only one we get in a plain brown bottle.  a commercial black ipa, re-labeled for the movie.

and suddenly, the beer is back in the film!

Might be nice to do a Wheat for the people that will not drink DARK BEERS :(

it's really just an ipa.  i'm not even sure that the majority will enjoy hoppy beers (mississippi is pretty behind in the beer scene), but the executive producer loves them, hence the batches of hoppy.

Depending on the size of the cast and crew, you may need more than 6 cases... But congrats on the opportunity.  Also glad to see that your local laws allow it to be shared so openly!

oddly, homebrewing won't be legal in mississippi until july 1, 2013, which is before the wrap party on the 19th of july.  this was more like, i mentioned it to the executive producer who loves ipas and he thought it was a great idea.  i'm not sure local laws permit this, but i'm not sure they prohibit it either.
