Stone Brewing Co. and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. have teamed for a new beer, NxS IPA, or North by South IPA.
NxS is a barrel-aged IPA blended with a fresh, dry-hopped batch of the same IPA. The first batch was brewed months before and aged in equal parts in gin infused bourbon barrels and rye whiskey barrels. Both batches were brewed using Magnum hops originally, with the late kettle addition of Amarillo, Cascade and Chinook hops, but the second batch saw the addition of being dry-hopped with Centennial and Mosaic hops.
NxS has an ABV 9 percent and 70 IBUs, and is available throughout Stone’s entire distribution footprint, both in the U.S. and internationally, in 22 ounce bottles and on draft at select retailers.
