Lower calories beers continue to inundate the marketplace and the latest brewery to do so is Great Divide Brewing. The Denver based brewer just launched Fastpack IPA, a moderately hazy, low calorie, low ABV, India Pale Ale.
Fastpack IPA offers a tasteful blend of citrus, peach and other stone fruits with lively hints of white wine. This lighter, fruit-oriented flavoring is anchored by a generous addition of Cashmere hops, with Simcoe and Chinook added. Fastpack IPA has only 99 calories and 4% ABV, perfect for a day of throwing back a few beers.
Great Divide suggests the following food pairings for Fastpack IPA – grilled lamb burger; Thai green curry; roasted zucchini & pesto; cabot sharp cheddar; and carrot cake.
Fastpack IPA is available year-round in 6-pack, 12oz cans and on draft. To locate Fastpack IPA use the Great Divide Beer Finder.
