The Beachmaster First Imperial IPA for North Coast

Who: North Coast Brewing Company, Fort Bragg, CA

What: Releasing The Beachmaster Imperial India Pale Ale

Vital Statistics

STYLE: Imperial India Pale Ale

COLOR: Pale Amber

ABV: 9%


Why: Beachmaster, is dedicated to the great Northern Elephant Seal. This full-bodied winter seasonal is our first ever Imperial IPA.
The Imperial IPA, synonymous with ‘double’ IPA, is known for its high gravity (7.6% ABV or higher), hoppy flavor, and strong body.

Both a tribute and companion to North Coast’s flagship beer,  Ruedrich’s Red Seal Ale, our Beachmaster captures the spirit of an American brewing style made popular by west coast brewers looking to test the limits of the traditional IPA.

Scottish Brewer to Build Beer Bar on the Border

Who/What:  Scottish brewery BrewDog announced plans to open a new craft beer bar that ‘straddles’ the border between the USA and Mexico.

James Watt, co-founder at BrewDog commented: “’The Bar on the Edge’ will be set up in the furthest outskirts of the United States, reflecting our ambition to reach every corner of the country as we begin to brew our beers on US soil.

When/Where: With specific locations still ‘top secret’, BrewDog has only revealed that half will be in Texas and the other half in Chihuahua, Mexico. The geographical border will be represented by a dotted line across the center of the bar and along the venue’s outdoor seating area.

Built from old shipping containers, the construction would officially be defined as a temporary mobile building and will serve Mexico beers on the US side, and US beers on the Mexico side, as well as BrewDog’s range of craft beers, brewed in Columbus Ohio.

Why: James Watt added: “It was JFK that said, ‘conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth’. We love the US, and we already have an amazing army of fans over here, but we do not intend to bring BrewDog ‘lite’ to the US. The ‘Bar on the Edge’ is our line in the sand, quite literally.”
