Sydney craft beer makers Philter Brewing has launched its fourth permanent offering in time for the warmer months.

The relatively young company Philter Brewing was built by three Sydney locals with the goal of making 'high-quality, easy-drinking' beer.

“Everyone was waiting for us to launch an IPA, but we really wanted to make one that was uniquely Philter and fit with our customer. That’s why we brewed a new-world IPA. We’re stoked at how excited everyone is already,” says head brewer Sam Füss.

With a 5.8% ABV, Philter IPA is geared for warm-weather consumers, described as delivering “a massive hit of refreshing passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus zest aromas, followed by a generous malt body and balanced bitterness. It’s kind of like we took summer and turned it into a beer,” Füss says.

The retro '80s-inspired green and gold cans of India Pale Ale are available in leading venues and bottle shops in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania and are the latest addition to Philter's core range joining the XPA, Red and Lager in the award-winning line-up.
