Summer is a great season for checking out old and new craft breweries alike. Everyone is going to be coming out with new brews to kick last year’s brews in the backside, which means we have a wealth of great brews to look forward to. That means that our summer road trips are sure to be filled with summer delights like the great IPAs that are popping up all over the United States. IPAs are likely to be taking over the season, although we do have to give a shout to those fruit-infused brews that seem to be pushing their way in all over the place as well. However, this leads us to wonder, could there be some amazing fruit-infused IPAs ready to take over the countryside?
The idea of a fruity IPA with all of the classic IPA goodness and an added dose of fruity charm makes some folks shudder in fear. Ok, we understand. Your favorite brew may be getting an injection of fruity venom. This scares you. However, it does not mean that your favorite IPA will be forever “ruined”, as these brews tend to stick around for a season and then wander off to hide from the chill of the rest of the year. So, for now, we’re more than willing to embrace the increased creativity that some fruit-filled IPAs could bring to the table.
We’ve put together a modest list of great IPAs, both in classic and fruit-filled form, for you to enjoy this summer. For those who prefer the classics, we’ve got you covered. However, we’ve also taken care of those adventurous souls who want to try something new this year. Something that will quench their thirst and leave a lingering fruit-filled taste in their hearts.
