Harriet is one of the newcomers to the rapidly expanding Minneapolis beer community. Like so many others they began their journey in a garage with dreams of making it big. In 2011 Harriet Brewing opened its doors and made a big splash with their flagship West Side Belgian-Style IPA. We feel a special kinship toward Harriet Brewing as several of our former, and current employees now work there. We are excited to bring you Harriet’s West Side IPA.
From our friends at Harriet Brewing:
West Side Belgian-Style IPA
Harriet's West Side is an eclectic ale brewed to balance the brightest West Coast hops with a prolific Belgian yeast strain. It pours light copper with a vigorous white head. Subtle malt gives way to a fruity, citrusy, and slightly spicy aroma and flavor. Light bodied, effervescent, and seductively approachable.
At Harriet Brewing we emphasize intention as the primary component in recipe development. It's what makes good beer special. We take pride in using our knowledge of traditional beer styles, our open minds, and eclectic palates to brew both unique and traditional beer styles. Our goal with every recipe is authenticity... to develop a particular character that allows the beer to stand out and be remembered. It's authenticity that we crave as beer drinkers; so, it's authenticity that we strive for as brewers. We study beer, determine what we want, then manifest it! For most of us here, it's not just in brewing; it's a way of life.
So, fellow beer lover, we ask that you drink with intention!
