If you read our recent write-up on Mission Brewery, you would know there’s lots of exciting changes going on in the brewhouse, as well as their brand new multi-level event space called The Cellar and The Loft. One thing we didn’t mention was the forthcoming release of their new flavor bomb, Plunder IPA – “A bounty of 9 bold hops.”
Not only did this ale pour a vibrant bronze or copper color, but it was practically see through. It was metallic looking, and shimmered like coins in the sun. This must have been how Mission arrived at the name, since it shined like a pirate’s plunder of doubloons.
