To celebrate International Women’s Day for 2023, the women who work at Melbourne’s Temple Brewing designed beer you don't often see, an IPL. But not just any India Pale Lager, either, this one was double dry-hopped with HBC 586, Amarillo and Mosaic.The recipe is Rachel Freeman’s, with the Temple brewer wanting to bring together some excellent American hops on a lean base. It’s certainly an excellent combination too, with fresh notes of pawpaw, pineapple and mandarin quite intense before being balanced by a bitter and crisp finish.
If you'd like to be there when this beer launches alongside two keg-only beers by other women at Temple, then head to the brewery's home from 5pm on March 8. The launch party will see 10 percent of sales from the bar go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation and what's more, $5 of every case and $20 of every wholesale keg of IPL is going to the same charity.
