Oatmeal IPA on tap near you

A cushion, buffer, or a pillow—however you describe it, a spoonful of oats helps the hops go down. For newest Hop Kitchen Series release, we’ve brewed the silky-smooth, ultra-tropical Oatmeal IPA, a collaboration with our Chicago friends at Half Acre Beer Co.

Over the last two years, our Hop Kitchen Series has been a springboard for launching new adventures in hops. We’ve introduced the delicate French Aramis hop variety to our fans, traveled down the road of hybrids with a Hoppy Bock, and trekked around the world with last year’s globally flavored Hop the Pond. A few times, we’ve even invited friends along for the adventure: We’ve teamed up with neighbors Odell Brewing for FOCOllaboration APA, and San Diego’s Alpine for multiple rounds of the always-popular Super IPA.

Oatmeal IPA began roughly four years ago, when our brewmaster Peter Bouckaert visited Half Acre during a trip to the Windy City. Bouckaert hit it off with Half Acre owners Gabriel Magliaro and Matt Gallagher—who actually lived in Colorado during New Belgium’s early days—and the seeds for a collaboration beer were planted.

“[We] used to live in Colorado when New Belgium was about the same size as we are today,” says Magliaro. “To go back and make beer with Peter, Lauren [Salazar] and everyone is personally and professionally badass for us.”

This two-part collaboration first appeared as Avoine IPA, an oat-spiked IPA brewed at New Belgium and released in late 2013 throughout Chicago (Avoine means “oats” in French, by the way). The second installment became Hop Kitchen Oatmeal IPA, which clocks in at 6% ABV and 60 IBUs. Like the name suggests, Oatmeal IPA’s brewed with a healthy dose of oats, which lends a silky texture to the swallow. Pair that with hefty additions of Citra and Centennial hops, and the result is a fruity, tropical hop-bomb with a creamier sip than the average IPA. 

“Having Avoine IPA only available in Chicago was just too much of a tease,” says specialty brand manager and blender Lauren Salazar. “I couldn’t resist bringing it back and sharing it with everyone. You just can’t get better than the Half Acre guys—we’ll always have a soft spot for them.”
