East Brother Beer Co. Head Brewer Paul Liszewski Talks Gold IPA

We spoke with East Brother Beer Co. Head Brewer Paul Liszewski about Gold IPA.

BC: Who came up with this beer’s recipe?
These recipes were developed by Co-Founder Chris Coomber. It is my job to ensure that we flawlessly execute those recipes with pride and precision. We evaluate every batch and have tweaked the recipes as a part of our continual improvement philosophies.

BC: What’s your favorite aspect of this beer (flavor, aroma, etc.)?
I really enjoy a nice clear IPA that is a bit malt-forward balanced with great aroma and flavor from hops. The Gold IPA covers all that for me, and it’s just shy of a Double IPA. With a toddler at home, I am lucky to get to drink any beer, so I make it count.

BC: Where does this beer’s name come from?
This is actually our third iteration of the beer’s name. At one time we had the word “wheat” in the name, but that was confusing for people. We finally settled on calling it what it is, Gold IPA.

BC: Can you describe this beer in 10 words or less?
Balance of malty and fruity, beautiful head and clarity.

BC: What's a good food pairing for this beer?
This is my go-to, spicy-food beer. It’s perfect for grilled hot links, mustard and sauerkraut. Pairs well with the grilling of the hot links too.
