Saint Arnold Brewing Company Starts Phased Rollout of Art Car IPA
The American IPA Debuts on Tap in Houston on National IPA Day
HOUSTON, August 6, 2015 – Saint Arnold Brewing Co. (www.saintarnold.com), the oldest craft brewery in Texas, is celebrating National IPA Day by giving Houston beer fans a sneak peak at Saint Arnold Art Car IPA, the brewery's new American IPA. Starting today, Art Car IPA will be available on tap in pubs and restaurants throughout Houston. In the coming weeks, Art Car IPA will begin appearing on tap in other select Texas markets, with cans coming later this year.
Saint Arnold Art Car IPA joins Saint Arnold Elissa IPA and Saint Arnold Endeavour – a double IPA – as year-round IPAs. It turns up the hops, featuring a blend of new and old hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest.
"Art Car IPA is a great complement to our current IPAs, with more fruit and citrus in the nose and a lighter malt backbone that allows the hops to really shine," said Saint Arnold Founder/Brewer Brock Wagner. "But this is not a one dimensional IPA – there is a nice complexity to the flavors. The taste starts with a big bitter blood orange that morphs into mangos and sweet tropical fruits."
Art Car IPA's name celebrates Saint Arnold's fleet of hand-painted art cars created by local artists. In fact, three of the brewery's art cars tied for first place for Best Commercial Entry in the 2015 Houston Art Car Parade, the oldest and longest art car parade in the world.
