4% ABV, 29 IBU
First sniff, this EPA exudes a strong, dank, damp-grass smell—the same aroma that you kicked up when you ran around the yard as a kid. You would think with such a strong smell, the hops would overpower in the taste. Not so: the malts balance out the hops, making the mouthfeel wonderfully creamy. Another fun fact—this beer is 98.6% organic.

The Princeton’s name has been in the booze industry since 1934, the year Princeton’s Saloon opened. In 1979, Joel Princeton opened up Princeton’s Liquors in Maple Grove. In 1997, his son Bill started and developed an affinity to beers not served at college parties. His love for craft beers helped turn Princeton’s Maple Grove into the craft beer store it is today.
