With the success of our Peach Wheat Ale and the hot summer days of August quickly approaching, we wanted to create something easy to drink that we’ve never seen or tasted before. So we put our heads together and thought what is refreshing and delicious during BBQ…fruit salad! So we decided to create a Melon IPA featuring cantaloupe and honeydew. We developed out our grain/hop bill to compliment the fruit and decided to go really experimental by using the yeast from our previous Hefeweizen brew. Well keep you posted on how it turns out, fingers crossed!
