Zupan’s is excited to introduce the eleventh beer in our Farm to Market series. Brewed in collaboration with Portland’s Ex Novo Brewing Company, this Imperial IPA is bold, crisp, and pairs perfectly with all things summertime.
The Farm to Market beer series began in 2015 to celebrate Zupan’s 40th Anniversary and throughout the years has featured exclusive bottlings created in partnership with local breweries including Buoy Beer, Breakside, Zoiglhaus & more.
A bold and crisp Imperial IPA, this beer features hand-selected Centennial hops from Yakima, WA, providing flavors of brilliant tangerine, lemon peel, and classic pine. Blending Pilsner and 2-row barley as well as a pinch of light caramel malt, provide this beer with deep yet crisp maltiness, allowing the Centennial hops to shine. Fermented with an American ale yeast allows makes for a dry finish yielding a pleasant and balanced bitterness. With an 8% ABV, this beer is excellent paired with grilled fare like bratwurst, salmon, and all things barbecue.
