Summer is still in full swing at Southend Brewery in downtown Charleston SC…and we have the new seasonal beer to prove it! Just in time for the Charleston Pub Crawl on August 18th, Brewmaster Ahren Warf has crafted the perfect Summer beer, a Citrus IPA. If you can’t wait until the weekend to have a sip, our new beer is on tap now. Come on in to our taproom and have a taste…you will not be disappointed!
A pale ale with an alcohol content 6.3%, the Citrus IPA is the perfect beer to enjoy with one of Southend’s great appetizers or menu entrees. If you have a preference for orange and lemon with your hops, the Citrus IPA is definitely for you because when Ahren makes a citrus beer, he does not fool around. He used 12 lbs…yes, 12!…of orange and lemon peel to create the Citrus IPA. If you’re thinking that’s a whole lotta peel, here’s how its broken down in the brewing process: 4 lbs were used during the mashing process, 4 lbs in the boiling process, 2.5 lbs in the fermenter and 1.5 lbs in the serving tank. Without a doubt, not only is there a lot of citrus, but there’s a lot of love in this new beer…
Whether you sip a sampler, grab a pint or fill up a pitcher with the Citrus IPA or any of our signature brews, we promise the lazy, hazy days of Summer are still going strong inside our brewery.
