Our Winter seasonal beer is here! Originally brewed in September of 1992 at the request of three bartenders/managers (who have since gone on to great fame and glory) Big Man I.P.A. has been a favorite seasonal brew at Cambridge Brewing Company ever since. Legend has it that the grist weight of Big Man I.P.A. was their combined total weight –
770 pounds of malt for 10 barrels of beer!
Deep copper-colored and unfiltered (as are all of CBC’s beers), it boasts a full body complemented by strong, robust flavors. Its rich notes of malt and caramel are offset by very aggressive hopping—it is kettle-hopped with Columbus, Cascade and Amarillo hops and further dry-hopped with even more Cascades and Amarillo.
These hop varieties lend a fruity, citrusy character to this big malty beer, in the style of a “winter-ized” I.P.A.
We just call it the Big Man.
Drink up and be somebody!
