Celebration IPA By Flossmoor Station

flossmoor station restaurant & brewing celebration ipa

Celebration IPA by Flossmoor Station Restaurant & Brewing is an American IPA. The uniqueness of this IPA is that it is brewed once, put on tap and/or bottled with colored wax to distinguish, and then they change the recipe. I like the idea as it gives the brewer a chance to let a piece of himself shine through based on how well each of the beers are received.

The bottle had purple wax to help me denoting that it free run 3.0 v4 femmes was their Celebration IPA offering (their webiste lists the colors and beers). The beer poured dark amber and cloudy with ample, tan, frothy foam. The aroma of citrus hops, even some floral hops with a big malt backbone: bread/dough. I believe the malt came through more based on the age but nonetheless still a very good beer. I wish I could have had Celebration IPA when it was fresher.

No matter, Flossmoor Station continues to impress with their American craft beer offerings and there is good chance I will be heading out there today 🙂 Enjoy!

Wednesday Paradise at Beer Store

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

It feels so good to make a beer store visit after a crazy week last week. The sob story: I had a load of server work last week that kept me from going into work on Wednesday. I know, you feel sorry for me. I feel like a caged bird that was let out of it’s cage.

Matt remembered me from two weeks ago. He isn’t new, he just took over for Travis. He is a cool guy that loves to talk beer. I look forward to hanging out for a short bit each week. Matt mentioned there are some good American craft beers coming out soon that will be limited in release. I hope I can get my hands on them and as I find out more, I will report the beers here (Jolly Pumpkin is coming out with a pumpkin beer since many people ask why they don’t make one).

I also picked up a bomber of Celebration IPA by Flossmoor Station Restaurant and Brewery and Barleywine Style Ale (2009) by Green Flash Brewing Co.. The Flossmoor beer I am basing on the wax color and their site. The bottle doesn’t make any idication that it is the beer I believe it is. The Green Flash beer I will be cellaring for a year or so.

The lady at the cash register mentioned that the new owners are trying to give customers a better selection for less money. The bottle of Flossmoor IPA I purchased was down $3, so it is a start. Enjoy!
