Charles Henri: IPA

Québec, Canada
6.2% ABV • SRM 10

The Charles Henri brand beers from Brasserie Les 2 Freres were named for the two brothers' grandfather who was very influential in their lives.

While IPAs might make you think they were brewed in India, they were actually first brewed in England. This one, of course, is brewed in Quebec. IPAs got their name because they were a strong beer able to survive the long boat trip from England to India back in the days of the British Empire.
