CHANDLER, AZ—Belgian Monks are known for brewing much of the world’s best craft beer, and now SanTan Brewing Company is delivering a hybrid brew that marries the hoppy magic of a West Coast IPA with the traditional spice and fruitiness of a Belgian Wit beer in this fall seasonal, SuperMonk IPA.
12 oz cans of SuperMonk IPA will be available at valley craft beer retailers from Labor Day through the end of October.
SuperMonk IPA is a naturally hazy, Belgian Style IPA with notes of citrus and orange peel dominating the aroma. Upon first sip, hoppy bitterness dances with peppery clove notes and finishes with a light orange and fruity flavor. SuperMonk IPA is a very drinkable craft beer. It’s light on the palate and ideal for craft beer lovers and hopheads alike.
Made with a hybrid “super yeast”, the secret behind SuperMonk is a combination of Proprietary California Ale yeast and a Trappist Ale Yeast Blend with Cascade and loads of Columbus hops. During the fermentation, the Belgian strain came across slightly more dominant and thus the SuperMonk name was born!
