Anchor Brewing Blackberry Daze IPA and Liberty IPA

In stock now at Forsyth

Anchor Brewing Liberty IPA....$8.99 / 6pk
Liberty IPA is Anchor’s reimagining of the craft beer classic Liberty Ale®, envisioned through the lens of today’s IPAs. We first brewed Liberty Ale in 1975 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Paul Revere’s midnight ride. This revolutionary forerunner of the modern IPA introduced America to the Cascade hop and the nearly lost art of dry-hopping, a steeping process to infuse beer with bold hop aromas.

Like its predecessor, Liberty IPA is made with two-row pale malt and Cascade hops. It is the combination of Cascade with new hop varieties—Nelson Sauvin and El Dorado—that creates the mouthwateringly complex and robust aromas of pine and citrus in this crisp, American-style IPA.

Liberty IPA is a bright straw golden color and boasts aromas of dank and resinous pine up front, with bold citrus and grapefruit notes on the back end. The assertive bitterness is complimented with hints of a light biscuit malt base and a smooth, dry finish. Liberty IPA is a celebration of the Cascade hopped IPA’s that Anchor first popularized back in 1975 and remain at the forefront of American craft beer trends.




Anchor Brewing Blackberry Daze IPA...$10.99 / 6pk
Blackberry Daze IPA™ is a synergistic union of blackberries and hops. Because the blackberry was once wildly rampant in California, it is our ideal choice for this singular Anchor brew.

Blackberry Daze IPA gets its hop bitterness and some hop aroma in the brewhouse, but most of the action happens in the cellar when the fruit is added during secondary fermentation. A special blend of loamy, herbaceous hops for dry-hopping complements the brightness and deep complexity of the blackberries. The result is a funky synthesis of rich earth and ripe fruit, hop bitterness and blackberry tartness, with alluring color and aromas up front, sublimely intense flavors, and a refreshingly dry finish.

The appearance of Blackberry Daze IPA is unique and unexpected as it features a ruby, blush pink color not found in your typical IPA. The packaging artwork displays a psychedelic label design that visually reiterates the beer’s alluring combination of hops and blackberries.
