This time, we will deliver the history of IPA and the unique lineup of DD4D.

I want to drink delicious beer even if I leave my hometown!

IPA was born 200 years ago.
The impetus was the longing for CHEERS! from British people who had left their hometowns.

At the time when many British immigrated to India for trade with Asia, it was difficult to store beer delivered from England, let alone produce beer, in Kolkata, where there was no refrigeration technology. Meanwhile, London brewer George Hodgson began producing beer that would not deteriorate during transportation to India, even under violent shaking and poor temperature conditions.

Pale Ale, which was shipped to India under the name of "October" at the time, is said to be the prototype of the current IPA. The pale ale, which takes several months to decompose all the yeast and uses a large amount of hops that have a bactericidal effect, is called India Pale Ale.


Introducing the characteristics of DD4D's classic IPA. Please growl and be addicted to the unique IPAs.
