Yorkshire Square Brewery to Release “Tweedy”, Their First IPA
This Friday, May 17th, Yorkshire Square Brewery is releasing their first ever IPA, but with a uniquely British spin.
Known for their modern British style cask ales, Yorkshire Square Head Brewer, Andy Black has been hesitant to explore the IPA territory up to this point. The way he sees it, there’s no sense in releasing an IPA if it is anything less than “quite good”.
But after coming up with a creative concept and a unique recipe that stands out in the crowded LA IPA market, Yorkshire Square finally ready to unveil their hoppy creation to the masses.
‘Tweedy’ is what they’re calling an Anglo-Californian IPA, mixing the new-school West Coast IPA with some British tweaks to make it their own.
According to Andy, it follows the general formula of today’s IPAs with some messing with the water chemistry, Azacca, Chinook, and El Dorado hops used throughout, and 3 dry-hop additions. Andy also went a step further and blended their house yeast with a typical American strain, and blended their house-made Invert Sugar #3 with the more commonly used dextrose.
Yorkshire Square Brewery Tweedy IPA finishes dry and bright with notes of guava, lime zest, grapefruit, pine, and some green tea.
It releases on Friday, May 17th on cask and keg in Yorkshire Square’s Torrance taproom and will also be available on draft at select accounts around the city.
