First there were blackberries, then peaches, and now Tired Hands Brewing Co. has moved on to pineapples.
The Ardmore, Pa.-based brewery recently put Pineapple Milkshake IPA on tap, a 7.2 percent ABV IPA brewed with lactose sugar and oats before being hopped “intensely” with both mosaic and citra hops. The beer was also conditioned on “a copious amount” of pineapple purée.
This is the fourth incarnation of Milkshake IPA to be released by Tired Hands, after Milkshake IPA (7.2 percent ABV) was released in March, Milkshake IPA (Blackberry/Blueberry) (7.4 percent ABV) was released in April and Peach Milkshake IPA (7.2 percent ABV) was released in June. All four beers have been brewed in collaboration with or had input from Sweden-based brewery Omnipollo.
According to the brewery’s Instagram page, Pineapple Milkshake IPA was made available on tap at the Tired Hands Brew Café on Thursday.
