Woodstock Inn Brewery has been making beer since 1995. It’s New Hampshire’s second oldest craft brewery and it’s located in North Woodstock.
Watch the second installment of the Brew Minute produced by our friends at New England Ski Journal.
This video stars fan fave employee, Steven Rouse and features tasting notes and information on Woodstock Inn Brewery’s 4000 Footer IPA. The name of this brew is an ode to hikers and the forty-eight, 4000 foot peaks in NH.
4000 Footer IPA (aka 4K) has a clean mouth feel and assertive bitterness. This West Coast style IPA has piney and floral hop notes. This is the first IPA recipe brewed by Woodstock and 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 IPA fans. Different hops and the amount of hops create different alpha acids that equate 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. Can’t find our beer? Ask us!
The Woodstock Inn Brewery is a craft brewery AND an all-in-one vacation property located at the basecamp of the White Mountains, also home to Loon Mountain, Alpine Adventures, Flume George, Ice Castles and more!
