While we usually steer away from tapping brews that you may easily find on tap elsewhere in the area, sometimes you have to make an exception for a classic American IPA brewed in the West Coast-style. We also checked our records and couldn’t find that we’d had this award winning IPA on tap here in the past, nor even in bottle, and felt it was time to rectify that.

From our friends about 136 miles to the north in Paso Robles, yesterday’s Mystery Beer was Union Jack IPA from Firestone Walker Brewing Company.

Firestone Walker Brewmaster Matt Brynildson shares his love for Union Jack:
