The naming of this beer’s the result of some good-natured nepotism. The postcode for West End is 4101, so Parched decided to make a beer full of character explicitly for its home suburb: 4101, a West Coast for West End.
The clear and coppery appearance of 4101 hints at the deep malt character within; the sweetness starts on the nose, and remains steady from that first bitter sip. A solid hopping of Mosaic, Centennial and Simcoe – the payload totalling 13 grams of hops per litre – yields waves of ripe pawpaw and resin, and wraps up the beer with a clean bitterness.
If that wasn’t enough, ten percent of the sales of 4101 WCIPA go to a community group in West End, with customers nominating a different group each month. Didn’t I say this was a beer for West End?
