Coastal Elite Hazy IPA on tap at West Palm Beach Brewery & Wine Vault


Hey, hazy IPA lovers, take note !  On Friday, December 7th, the West Palm Beach Brewery will release its latest hazy IPA, called Coastal Elite.  Get on over to 332 Evernia Street, West Palm Beach, Florida 33401 and here is what you need to know about this delicious IPA.

  • Hazy IPA on Tap.  The IPA is probably the beer which put the American craft beer industry on the map. What’s funny about the India Pale Ale is that it seems craft beer lovers either love ’em or don’t drink IPAs at all.   At the West Palm Beach Brewery, they have 20 craft beers on tap  https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-beers/  and will have maybe 2-4, sometimes 5, IPAs.  In other words this downtown Palm Beach brewery is not an “IPA house” but they do offer delicious selections and some variety.  
  • Micro Brewery in West Palm Loves IPA.  “I happen to love IPAs” says John Pankauski, Managing Member of the West Palm Beach Brewery & Wine Vault.  ” I love the piney, or citrussy nose and the thirst quenching flavor.”  Pankauski, a native of Massachusetts, wanted to stay true to his roots and asked his chief brewery to create a New England style hazy IPA.  They released “Everybody’s Got Haze” earlier this fall season.  “It was a hit” says Pankauski “So, we are making new hazy IPA offerings available in our tap room. But don’t forget the other great IPAs which we have including MeterMaid IPA and Uncle Mitch’s Ale.”  The MeterMaid IPA     was created at a time when there parking meters out front of the brewery (now there is outdoor, shaded seating).  The chief brewer was making his first IPA batch for the new brewery and saw a metermaid writing a parking ticket, thinking ‘ that metermaid needs a beer.’  The Uncle Mitch’s Ale is an IPA tribute to Pankauski’s late Uncle who ran the St. Mike’s Polish Club in Peabody, Massachusetts and who enjoyed beer. The Uncle Mitch’s Ale was tapped for the brewery’s August, 2018 Polka Block Party with the Polka King Jan Lewan. https://www.westpalmbeer.com/polish-craft-beer-polka-block-party/   If you missed the very best Polka Block Party this past August, 2018, not to worry!  There is a February 2, 2019 Polka Block party at the brewery:         https://www.westpalmbeer.com/polka-party-february-2-west-palm-beach-brewery/
  • Coastal Elite Hazy IPA.    This hazy IPA now served in the tap room of this micro brewery in downtown West Palm Beach clocks in at 5.2% ABV.  It is brewed with pale malt, flaked oats, East Coast ale yeast, and Columbus and Citra hops. Enjoy the haze and aromatics of grapefruit and orange zest coming forth from the glass.  Coastal Elite Hazy IPA has a citrusy flavor and slightly dank note in taste.  “This hazy IPA has an east coast look and a west coast flavor” says Pankauski, who actually spends a lot of time in California, visiting craft breweries and vineyards, for this brewery’s wine bar and retail store.  Yes, this brewery has a wine bar   and offers 50 premium wines you wont’ find anywhere else.   https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-wines/
  • Brewery Restaurant.  The West Palm Beach Brewery is the only Palm Beach Brewery with a restaurant, called The Intracoastal Kitchen. This top rated brewery restaurant offers wood fire food, Firenze Pizza, bar bites and “made in sight” “made to order” small  plates and more hearty meals to go with their beer and premium wine.   Right now, they are pairing the Coastal Elite hazy IPA with the chef’s Shrimp Tacos (topped with Lettuce, Tomato and Spicy Mayo). 
  • VIP Tastings and Private Brewery Receptions. This brewery has VIP services and a VIP room for private wine dinners, tastings and craft beer events for families, gatherings and corporate socials.   Join the Wine Club and check them out on Facebook @wpbrewery to learn about upcoming events, and to get dates of wine dinners, craft beer dinners and special events.
