Brewpub Exclusives


Original Release Date:



Fortified with sixty pounds of local wildflower honey from our neighbors at S&S Apiaries in Dover, this Brewpub Exclusive is a super-hopped IPA fermented with French Saison yeast. The name is a nod to the enthusiastic and passionate spirit of the team of our wholesale/distributor partners who helped brew this beer (from DE, DC, GA, NJ, CT, MA, NC & more!) and also to the Ardennes region of Belgium with their creative brewing philosophy.

There are over 1.5 pounds of American hops in each barrel including Simcoe, Chinook, Nugget, and Centennial, with half added as dry hops at the end of fermentation. The enormous hop additionscontribute piney, grapefruity, and resinous aromas and flavors that compliment the spicy tropical fruit notes from the yeast. Crystal and Munich malts build a backbone that stands up to the intense hoppiness and give the brew a golden brown hue. This IPA/Saison hybrid will taste great with a woodgrilled burger topped with blue cheese and onions.

We plan to tap Ardent IPA on or around Friday, June 10, 2011. It'll be on as long as it lasts. Cheers.
