Galway Bay Weights & Measures Session IPA 33cl 3°
The Galway Bay Weights & Measures is a 100% Citra hops beer.
It comes from a blend of malted barley: Maris Otter, Vienne and Carapils, to which is added oats to give a base full of aromas.
This IPA Session has been heavily hopped during boiling, but has also benefited from a dry hopping, which strengthens the citrus notes (orange, lemon and grapefruit) and decreases the bitterness that makes it possible to assimilate to a New England IPA (NEIPA).
This beer is very fruity and has a low alcohol content.
It scored 91/100 by Rate beer.
Founded in 2009 by two friends Jason O'Connell and Niall Walsh, the Galway Bay brewery has grown rapidly.
Jason and Niall opened a small pub in Galway on the West Coast of Ireland with the aim of offering their customers locally made fresh beers alongside a full range of international craft beers.
It was quickly obvious that the beer produced deserved to be shared. Eight years and eleven bars later, the Galway Bay brewery has grown from an annual production of just 300 hectoliters to over 5,000 hectoliters today.
Their beers and brewery have been rewarded on numerous occasions both in Ireland and internationally. Galway Bay Brewery has recently been voted best brewery and best beer producer in Ireland by Rate Beer and has won a silver medal in the World Cup for "Buried at Sea".
