Door County Brewing Company announced today the release of a their first ever IPA.
Sideshow Door County Style IPA blends a traditional IPA recipe with the Belgian yeast strain unique to the brewery.
Head brewer Danny McMahon spent months experimenting and refining the recipe with the goal of showcasing both yeast and hops and ensuring neither element overshadows the other.
“By using a blend of El Dorado, German Hüell Melon and German Mandarina Bavaria hops, we crafted a juicy, fruit-forward IPA that’s not overly bitter,” McMahon said. “This balance sets Sideshow apart from our other beers, as well as IPAs in general, which is how we decided on the name.”
In a press release, Door County said Sideshow steps outside of the local heritage most of their other beers celebrate to embrace a more transient part of Wisconsin’s culture, its unique circus history.
Sideshow will be available in Wisconsin and Minnesota beginning in April.
