After a long day exploring any of the 4000 foot peaks in the Granite State (there are 48!), there’s nothing better then a cold 4000 Footer IPA and a steak! Kick off the hiking boots, turn on the grill, crack open a brew and fill that belly with a taste of the mountains in every bite!
- 1 cup Woodstock Inn Brewery 4000 Footer IPA
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 3 cloves garlic, smashed
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- In a large bowl, combine all marinade ingredients until mixed well.
- Pour marinade into an air tight, sealable container (large zip-lock bag works fine).

- Refrigerate for 1-3 hours (up to 24 hours); toss on the grill and cook to desired temperature.
ABOUT THE BEER:
4000 Footer IPA (aka 4K) has a clean mouth feel and assertive bitterness. This West Coast style IPA has piney and floral hop notes. 4K was the inaugural IPA brewed by Woodstock. It has a 6.5 ABV with 82 IBUs. IBU stands for International Bittering Unit. The more bitter the beer, the higher the IBU.
For comparison, Woodstock makes Pig’s Ear Brown Ale, which has 20 IBU’s, while 4K IPA has 82. This gives the 4K a more bitter taste enjoyed by many IPA fans. Different hops and quantity of hops create a unique alpha acid blend that equates to the flavor.
You can find 4000 Footer IPA at the brewery and in package and grocery stores throughout New England, including Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
