Origin: USA – Type: India Pale ale – Alcohol: 6%
The beer: 1337 Ale is a fairly average IPA, with all the hoppy tastes and malty subtleties that you would expect. There’s a nice aroma and taste of caramel but there’s not much more to it. It is certainly a tasty beer and very drinkable in that respect, but it doesn’t do much to stand out from the crowd. One plus point is that it’s sold in a 750ml bottle, so great for sharing or if you don’t want to queue at the bar for a while!
The little extra: Named after H.R. 1337, which legalised home brewing in the USA and allowed the craft beer industry to boom.
Where we bought it: Brewdog’s flagship Camden bar. A must visit for a great range of beer and delicious food.
Brewdog: 113 Bayham Street, Camden Town, London, NW1 0AG – UK.
