About IPA / Indian Pale AleAn IPA (India Pale Ale) is originally an English beer style. According to the old stories, a lot of hops were added to the beer, so that it could be kept for a long time during the long boat trip to the then English colony of India. Like alcohol, hops are a natural preservative. The addition of the volume of hops gives the beer a pronounced and somewhat bitter taste.
Previous winners of the prize were Brouwerij De Blauwe IJsbeer (2017) from Nieuwpoort and Ebontree (2018) from Dordrecht.
