Drink: Beavertown Bloody ‘Ell Blood Orange IPA

Beavertown Bloody Ell Launch

Will you exclaim Bloody ‘Ell…

When you try this 7.2% Blood Orange IPA?

Bloody ‘Ell is Beavertown’s spring seasonal beer, brewed for only a month and a half every year.  This short brewing season is due to the main ingredient, organic Sicilian blood oranges. They’re used as no chemicals are wanted in the zest, which is also added to the beer. This short brewing season means that it is much in demand, and as such there are special launches nationwide.
