Six Bridges Brewing Head Brewer Alex Ciaburri and Production Manager Bryan Johnson Talk Medlock IPA

We spoke with Six Bridges Brewing Head Brewer Alex Ciaburri and Production Manager Bryan Johnson about Medlock IPA.

BC: Where does this beer's name come from?
The name comes from a bridge and road in the city of Johns Creek, both named after one of the early families that settled the area. Medlock Bridge crosses the Chattahoochee River and leads to Atlanta. Medlock Bridge Road is the main drag through town.

BC: Can you describe this beer in 10 words or less?
Soft, smooth, citrus-forward, bright and refreshing.

BC: What’s your favorite aspect of this beer (flavor, aroma, etc.)?
The aroma. The balanced combination that Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe hops create.

BC: Do you know a story – or have a personal story – that revolves around this beer?
Having the opportunity of meeting some of the Medlock Family made the beer more personal for us. The fact that they still own the original homestead at the river crossing really put a rich history behind this beer for us.

BC: Is this your "desert island" beer?
Like many, I enjoy a variety of beers, but I certainly wouldn't mind if this was the only one I had.

BC: What's a good food pairing for this beer?
This beer/style pairs well with a lot of foods. Grilled pork tenderloin seasoned with fresh herbs, a nice charcuterie board or brick oven pizza.
