West Side Belgian-Syle IPA symbolizes the beginning of Harriet Brewing. After years of home brewing and a new path being laid before him, Jason Sowards started Harriet Brewing in his basement garage on the west side of Lake Harriet. Not to be drowned in a sea of IPA’s, West Side was designed to stand out as something different – a beer that focused on balance. With a nod to the neighborhood and a balanced blend of water, barley, yeast, and hops, West Side was born.
West Side is an eclectic ale brewed to balance the brightest West Coast hops with a prolific Belgian yeast strain. It pours light copper with white head. Its subtle malt gives way to a fruity, citrusy, and slightly spicy aroma and flavor. The medium-bodied West Side is snappy and leaves your palate refreshed.
