Blue Moon®: White IPA Hunt

Blue Moon Brewing Co.® has enlisted Eater Chicago to bring fans a sneak peek into the making of a brew like their upcoming Blue Moon White IPA®. Hitting the shelves in April, it will be brought to Chicago in an exclusive preview event at the end of January.

What makes this White IPA white? This new style is actually two-a Belgian White and an American IPA. The Blue Moon® brewers started with wheat, orange peel, and coriander, ingredients that originally inspired Blue Moon Belgian White®. They experimented with hop after hop until they discovered a rare, complementary German hop called Huell Melon. It's unfiltered, pleasantly hoppy, and incredibly balanced. Best of both worlds.

Blue Moon® is now challenging Eater Chicago readers to embark on a search of their own that will lead you to the very first sips of Blue Moon White IPA® available now only in Chicago. On January 29, decode the GPS coordinates below to discover an exclusive launch party where the first 20 verified participants will receive a custom etched growler and a seat at a beer dinner with a brewmaster and even a trip to Denver for a private tour of the Blue Moon Brewing Company® at the Sandlot. Good luck!
