Leeds Brewdog Show: North Bar Single Hop IPA Event & Mr Foley’s Brewdog Taps

Following my post on Alfred Bar yesterday, I don’t want to spend too much time praising the North Bar group, but Jings, Crivvens an’ Help ma Boab, this is exciting:

According to the message sent to North Bar’s Facebook group:

There will be, in the near future, a very special unique occasion at North, Brewdog are launching their brand new range of Single Hopped IPAs. We will have ALL FOUR IPAs on for one night only, as well as lots of other Brewdoggy goodness […] sign up to our mailing list for more news here: http://bit.ly/epQp8Z

Read more about the “IPA Is Dead” project on the Brewdog Blog:

IPA is dead showcases 4 killer hops varieties from 4 different continents. The result is 4 radically different single hop IPAs. Each IPA contains the same malt backbone and is brewed to be 75 IBU and is enthusiastically kettle hopped and dry hopped with Citra, Bramling Cross, Nelson Sauvin or Sorachi Ace.

Leeds Brewdog fans should also be excited that Mr Foley’s has recently installed a permanent Brewdog tap, with two changing keg Brewdog beers on at any one time as well as a load of bottles in the fridge.  The 5AM Saint was especially good from keg.  According to their It’s Your Round page the ones currently on are Punk IPA and Zeitgeist.

UPDATED: The date of the IPA Is Dead launch has been confimed as Wednesday 16 February.  I should be there, with any luck.

    I spotted the article on Leeds Guide about Mr Foley’s as well, I think they are going to be having the four core keg beers rotating over two taps. Those being, if my memory serves, Zeitgeist, 77 Lager, Punk IPA and 5am Saint.

    I’m keen to try the Punk IPA as it’s the new recipe 5.6% version which was formerly Punk X during it’s test phase. Incidentally I posted yesterday (www.eatingisntcheating.blogspot.com)about the death of the old Punk and how i was hoping to try the new punk at Mr Foley’s!

      Hi Neil, thanks for the link to your blog, it’s really interesting. Have added it to my blogroll and will look forward to reading more!

      I’ve tried the Punk IPA at Foley’s last week and I think it does taste more rounded as the reviews suggest – but to be fair I never tried old Punk on keg, only cask and bottle, so it’s difficult to judge. Would like to do a side-by-side comparison with a couple of bottles though.

        Cheers for the linkage,

        i’ve only had it on Cask at Veritas I think, and in bottle numerous times. But Craft keg? Like hens teeth!

        Will let you know on my blog how the tastings go….

    Really looking forwards to this event, all these beers use interesting hops and dare I say it…is this a bit of bandwagon jumping by those “Dandy Brew Punks of Fraserburgh” (copyright Zak Avery). Bramling Cross, Nelson Sauvin, Soraci Ace and Citra. Yes I’m excited to try them but hasn’t Mikkeller already done this?

    do we know when the event will be happening yet? I seem to be in the habit of missing these things.

    Also, anyone off to the Beer Bloggers conference in London?
