Covering the fascinating events that caused IPA to take off in the early 1990s, both in London at seminars and festivals, and in the US. By 2014, IPA is the leading category at the annual Great American Beer Festival. The renaissance is now worldwide, with IPAs brewed in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Japan and elsewhere.
The history of IPA:
It’s rise and fall were equally spectacular. Starting out as a beer for India, the style was first developed at the turn of the 19th century by a small brewery, Hodgson’s, in East London. A three or four month journey to India was ideal for the style of beer and soon other breweries were sending large supplies to India. But IPA s hey-day is brief. By the end of the century, American and German brewers were sending lager beer to India and supplying ice to keep it cold. British brewers retreated and classic Victorian IPAs were dead.
