Brewer: Greenpoint Beer & Ale Co.
Style: Red IPA
Greenpoint Beer & Ale is making tons of great beer in its Greenpoint, Brooklyn, brewpub location. Recently the brewery has been gaining recognition for its can releases, in particular its selection of hoppier delights including the tropical Turbulence double IPA, juicy Instant Credibility double IPA, or bitter and balanced Grey Matter IPA. But one that stands out, particularly in the season of soft-woven fabrics, is Flannel Shirt IPA, a red IPA brewed in the Northwest tradition with a strong malt backbone, bold hop flavor, and satisfying notes of caramel and pine tree.
