What the ‘L’ is the difference?

We’ve all heard of IPAs, but Leinenkugel’s likes doing things a little differently. So, they’re introducing their new IPL.

So, what the ‘L’ is the difference?

Leinenkugel’s IPL, as in India Pale Lager, is a lager instead of an ale, so everything you love about hops comes through even more clearly, making it crisp and refreshing.

Hop lovers, you’ll also be glad that this IPL has 57 IBUs and is brewed with five distinctive hops: Hallertauer Herkules, Citra, Cascade, Ahtanum, and a new one called Hallertau Mandarina Bavaria.

Leinie’s IPL will only be available as a limited draft test in a few cities: Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Racine, Chicago and Minneapolis/St. Paul.

To celebrate this release, we have a special badge for you to earn! Simply check-in one (1) Leinenkugels IPL between 10/15/14 and 12/15/14 and the badge is yours! Wonder who is serving this beer? Visit LeiniesIPL.com find where it’s on draft near you!

To learn more about Leinenkugel’s, join them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
