by Browar Pinta
With this beer we welcome Browar Pinta from Poland to our wholesale portfolio.
Pinta are recognised as Poland’s very first craft brewery, with this very beer being their first commercially produced offering back in 2011. It is only fitting that we start with this beer that has played an important role in their history.
And it comes as no surprise that Poland’s first craft beer was an American style IPA – with a name that translates as ‘Hops Attack’. The IPA is seen as the starting place for craft beer. No other beer style has gone through so many style variations, but continuously stayed front and centre of the beer landscape.
The original old-school American IPA’s were blessed with a caramel malt body that carried a fairly aggressive level of hop bitterness. Not as sweet and aromatically inviting as many of the current tropical versions of the style, but they did find a niche among beer drinkers looking for more flavour.
And our Pinta beer pretty much ticks those boxes. With a copper-coloured body full of chewy caramel malt, a little fruit sweetness mixed with pine and herbal hops. As the beer warms a little the body gains a stickiness with a deeper malt character that balances out the firm hop bitterness so well.
