OW X IMBC - Joyous Event

Alc Vol. 5.8%
Sour IPA Dry-Hopped with Huell Melon

Sour IPA dry-hopped with Huell Melon, aged in Rioja wine barrels.

The Joyous Event is upon us. Our friends from IMBC collaborated with us on the beer they want to drink at their festival, a smashable mixed fermentation IPA. The team from IMBC tasted their way through the OverWorks cellar creating a blend of old and young. Sour stock aged for one year in Rioja red wine barrels was rejuvenated with a blast of fresh, Brett IPA and dry-hopped with Huell Melon to accentuate the rich fruity fermentation character.

The Brew Sheet


Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)


International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)

Sour IPA

Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on

Oats, Pilsner, Rye, Wheat

We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.

Magnum, Huell Melon

Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!


water, malted barley, wheat, oats, spelt, hops, yeast.
