“Father’s Day IPA” Overturning the conventional image


From May 14, 2020, SanktGallen Co., Ltd. will launch a new limited edition beer “Father’s Day IPA” for Father’s Day.

IPA is a style that uses a large amount of hops, which is the source of the bitterness and aroma of beer, and features a strong bitterness and aroma. It is said that the bitterness and aroma were accepted as “individuality” that major beers do not have, and it was said to have driven the craft beer boom.

Even at SanktGallen, we have been making an IPA called YOKOHAMA XPA all year round, and we have the world’s second best record in the IPA section of the World Beer Awards.

Father’s Day IPA uses more hops than YOKOHAMA XPA, but by focusing the timing of the brewing on the boil “after” instead of the normal wort boil “medium”, the hop bitterness is light and pineapple and citrus fruits It is a beer with condensed hop aroma reminiscent of fruit.

In addition, it is a dogma that IPA, which has a strong bitterness, is also balanced by finishing the mouthpiece heavily. But Father’s Day IPA cuts the sugar content of beer to almost zero, making it a dry and refreshing drink.

Almost zero sugar content

It is a perfect IPA for hot days when you can drink it, overturning the image of IPA that you can thoroughly enjoy.

At the online shop, we also have two types of IPA drink comparison sets.

For a few years, I had the idea of making a beer for Father’s Day, but I didn’t have the time to start.

Meanwhile, all the spring and summer events scheduled to open due to the influence of the new coronavirus were canceled, most of the dealers were closed, and the spring shipment volume fell to less than half, and the days ahead can not be seen It was.
But I decided to do what I could because I had such time, and started to develop “Father’s Day IPA”.
