Smuttynose / Stone Cluster's Last Stand Beer
  • IPA · 8.3% ABV

    Cluster’s Last Stand defies the commonly  accepted notion that strong, hoppy beers are recent arrivals on the US beer landscape.

    So last month, Greg Koch from Stone Brewing Company joined us to brew 30 barrels of Cluster’s Last Stand, a beer that recreates the original, right-after-Prohibition Ballantine IPA recipe, as found in Mitch Steele’s, epic book on India Pale Ales. You can see from the ingredient list below that Cluster’s Last Stand truly isn’t your everyday IPA, but we just drank some during the bottling run and it’s just as delicious as anything out there on the market today. 8.3% abv 62 IBU’s Malts: North American 2-Row, Flaked Maize, Munich 10L, C-60 Hops: Bittering-Cluster, Flavor- Brewers Gold and East Kent, Dry Hop- Bullion Yeast: White Labs WLP-001 American Ale (widely rumored to be the original Ballantine strain)
