Good People Brewing Company (Birmingham, Alabama) recently announced that Hitchhiker IPA has officially returned to shelves and taps for the spring.
Brewed each spring as a more West Coast representation of the style than Good People Brewing’s American IPA, Hitchhiker IPA boasts a more tropical fruit character by displaying notes of pineapple, grapefruit, orange and tangerine. Relying on a sturdy, caramel malt backbone, this 7.8% ABV, 100+ IBU India Pale Ale passes through each year as “a rejuvenating option whatever the weather brings.”
Hitchhiker IPA is officially available now and will be hanging around through the spring months (while supplies last). Look for this Seasonal offering to be available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer retailers, bars and restaurants in Alabama and throughout the rest of Good People Brewing’s distribution area. Official Hitchhiker IPA Release Events started late last week and will be going on through the month of March at select craft beer establishments.

Just as its name implies, the fan-favorite Hitchhiker IPA will be moving on before you know it. Make sure that this is the one Hitchhiker that you pick up and enjoy your time together while you can. Prost!
