Meantime IPA
India Pale Ale

The story began in Bow London in the 1790’s and has now jumped across the river. It was originally brewed for the civil servants and troops in India, as a strong, heavily hopped beer was needed to withstand a tropical voyage. IPA is brewed with Fuggles and East Kent Goldings hops, giving theclassical earthy dryness overlaid with orange pekoe fruitiness of this most Maris Otter variety. The perfect foil for a mature cheddar with oatcakes.
