Pot Luck: Rye IPA from Mountain Goat

Posted by


Mountain Goat’s been cranking out limited edition beers for many a moon now, and we like the way each concoction has its own character: some are completely new beasts, others different interpretations on Abootsford boys’ stable brews.

The Rye IPA belongs in the latter category. Similar to Goat’s India Pale Ale but chock-full of malted rye and malted barley that gives a nuttiness followed by a fruity nose and hoppy finish.

At 6.1% it’s not exactly a session beer, but that’s why it’s a limited run. Enjoy, sip, savour why you can.

Rye IPA is available for a limited time on tap at the Mountain Goat Brewery, where you can try their other single run batches. Tonight (Friday) the boys are tapping The Randy – an IPA “made with love, respect and caffeine.”

Otherwise Rye IPA is available at Slow Beer, McCoppins, Blackhearts and Sparrows and other good beer stores.
