Northern Brewer University takes a deep dive into one of the hottest (er… coldest) new craft beer styles: Cold IPA. Course instructor Chip Walton breaks down the style guidelines and ingredients to look at what makes Cold IPA unique from other IPAs and hoppy beer styles. Hear the style’s origin story directly from the brewer credited with developing the style, Kevin Davey of Wayfinder Beer, and learn more about what he considers the essential elements of a Cold IPA. You’ll also hear from two more professional brewers about their Cold IPA process and get a bit into the business of selling IPAs. Then it’s time to brew! Two Northern Brewer homebrewers walk us through their different methods for making a Cold IPA in three video demonstrations.
The Brewing to Style series looks at different beer styles – everything from classic and historical styles, to the most popular new styles – what makes them unique, how they are brewed, and what variations you might find. We approach styles from a homebrewer’s perspective, but also present conversations with professional brewers to more fully understand style guidelines and brewing techniques.
