Half Acre Beer Co. (Chicago, Illinois) has officially announced that it will launch Bodem IPA, its newest Year-Round offering, on April 26.
Arriving as a bit of a departure from the “bone-dry West Coast IPAs” that Half Acre has been known for since 2007, Bodem IPA is a “different” take on the India Pale Ale – “smack in the middle of West and East Coast styles” – that is “balanced with a soft, welcoming mouthfeel that plays to the sticky citrus and tropical fruit qualities of the hops.” Clocking in at just 6.8% ABV, Bodem IPA promises to be “accessible for classic craft drinkers and intriguing for those intimately familiar with Half Acre’s portfolio of pioneering brews.”
Bodem IPA will officially launch to the public on Friday, April 26 in Half Acre’s Lincoln Avenue and Balmoral Avenue Taprooms and Store, and distribution is scheduled to follow on Monday, April 29. You can expect to find this new Year-Round offering available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer-friendly retailers, bars and restaurants located in Illinois and throughout the rest of Half Acre’s distribution footprint. Prost!
