这款IPA的灵感来自一道经典的美式中餐外卖:橙皮鸡。新鲜的橙子皮和陈皮带来清新的香气,再由川椒添加入一丝辛香;柑橘味和辛香味完美混合在一起,口感顺滑,酒香扑鼻。此酒没有使用鸡肉!

Based on the classic American Chinese take-out dish, this guilty pleasure IPA combines citrus and spice in a smooth, hoppy body. Fresh orange peels and aged chen pi bring refreshing aromatics, rounded out by a touch of sichuan pepper. No chickens were used in the process!

来讲讲橙皮辣子鸡IPA的故事吧。

2019年,我们受邀参加联合艺术在加拿大汉密尔顿举办的啤酒节。这是我们在加拿大参加的第一个啤酒节,惊奇、兴奋之余,Kris得到了一个与联合艺术合酿的机会,橙皮辣子鸡IPA由此诞生。

这款酒的灵感来自汉密尔顿当地一家热门中餐厅 “北京小居”非常受欢迎的一道菜:橙皮鸡。我们觉得用啤酒还原这道菜的味道会很有趣,同时也能体现出传统中餐在北美地区所经历的变化。

不用担心,这款啤酒里并没有鸡肉,只有新鲜的橙皮、陈皮和四川花椒。柑橘味和辛香味完美混合,让你忍不住想点个中餐外卖。当然啤酒里面也不含味精(说实话,适量味精其实无害)。

So where did Orange Chicken come from?

In 2019, we were invited to attend the Collective Arts Beer festival in Hamilton Canada. This was our first festival in Canada, and from our endless enthusiasm and wide-eyed wonder came Kris’ chance to collaborate with Collective Arts, where the No.17 Orange Chicken IPA was born.

The inspiration for this beer came from a popular dish served at the “Beijing Hut 北京小居”, a local favorite Chinese-Canadian restaurant in Hamilton. We thought it would be funny to try and recreate the flavors of this dish while also illustrating how traditional Chinese cuisine has changed over the years in North America.

Don’t worry – there is no actual chicken in this beer, just heaps of fresh orange peel, chenpi and sichuan peppercorn for a perfect mix of citrus and spice that reminds you of ordering Chinese takeout. Some of you might be pleased to hear that it’s MSG-free (but MSG is good in small quantities y’all)
