Thomas Coopers Brew A IPA
Thomas Cooper’s first recorded brew was designated to be Brew “A”. And according to his brewing log, dated 13th May 1862. “A” contained four bushels of malt and eight pounds of Kent hops in 46 gallons of water, which he made into a Pale Ale and a slightly heavier Ale.
This was an American style IPA and made in the tradition of a heavier Ale. Full bodied with deep amber and reddish hues. Its tropical, citrusy and grapefruit notes with toasty amber malt balances the clean, hop filled, bitter finish. You won’t believe Thomas used to sell it for seven schillings a dozen.
