Cooperstown, N.Y.-based Brewery Ommegang is releasing Great Beyond Double IPA.
Great Beyond Double IPA is brewed with Pilsner and Munich 20 malts, flacked oats, and dextrose. This malt base gives Great Beyond a smooth mouth feel to compliment the calypso, Cascade, centennial, Columbus, Mandarina Bavaria and Mosaic hops.
Ommegang is typically known for its Belgian-style beers, but has ventured into the world of IPAs previously with Nirvana.
“Double IPA is a style we were excited to brew; it’s a further exploration beyond the Belgian-styles we are known for historically,” said Phil Leinhart, brewmaster for Brewery Ommegang. “Nirvana received such a great reaction, of course we wanted to see if we could take that to another level. And I’m really excited we are sharing this beer nationally – unlike Nirvana which we restrict to our heartland, fans everywhere can enjoy Great Beyond and tell us what they think.”
Great Beyond has an ABV of 8.8 percent and 83 IBUs. It is available in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles and on draft. It is currently available at brewery and will be available throughout Ommegang’s full distribution footprint later this month.
