At Fegley’s Bethlehem Brew Works, we just released our latest beer from Brewer Josh Bushey and it is fantastic! Post-Prohibition IPA comes in at 7%ABV, 1.070 OG and has a rating of 60 IBUs.
Josh brewed this IPA based on a recipe from Newark, New Jersey’s late Ballantine Brewery. Our rendition of this historic ale is malty, without being cloying, bittered and late hopped with the classic American hop cluster. Brewer Josh then dry hopped it with East Kent Goldings, some more Cluster hops, and aged it on oak spirals.
Pay homage to one of the oldest brands of beer in the United States and enjoy how an IPA would have tasted in the late 1940’s! Post-Prohibition IPA is available on draft exclusively at Fegley’s Bethlehem Brew Works.
From Wikipedia about Ballantine Brewing Company: “The company was founded in 1840 in Newark, New Jersey, by Peter Ballantine (1791–1883), who emigrated from Scotland. The company was originally incorporated as the Patterson & Ballantine Brewing Company. Ballantine rented an old brewing site which had dated back to 1805. Around 1850, Ballantine bought out his partner and purchased land near the Passaic River to brew his ale. His three sons joined the business and in 1857 the company was renamed P. Ballantine and Sons. The name would be used for the next 115 years, until the company closed its brewery in May 1972. By 1879, it had become sixth largest brewery in the US, almost twice as large as Anheuser-Busch. Ballantine added a second brewery location, also in Newark, in order to brew lager beer to fill out the company product line.” Read more
