From the brewer

"An easy drinking and refreshing IPA with a hoppy taste and aroma to give a clean, dry finish."

Greene King IPA is our flagship beer – born and brewed in our hometown, Bury St Edmunds.

We’ve been crafting quality cask ales at the Westgate Brewery, Bury St Edmunds, since 1799. The roots set down by Benjamin Greene and Frederick King are embedded in the way we make our beer today. Our dedication to brewing hasn’t changed and we still apply the same passion and craftsmanship to every single pint of Greene King IPA.

Greene King IPA is a pint people trust and recommend to friends. It’s an easy drinking, session ale with a hoppy taste and aroma making it clean, crisp and moreish. That’s why more cask ale drinkers prefer the taste of IPA to leading competitors, and it’s the fastest selling cask ale. It’s award-winning too – recently picking up a prestigious 2015 Gold Monde Award

Tasting Notes

Fresh dry hop, herbal character is provided by the mix of challenger and first gold hops. The use of crystal malt in the grist gives a satisfying toffee/caramel note and the addition of a little black malt adds just enough astringency to give a clean dry finish.

Food Pairing

A popular, lighter ale that is well matched with curry, spicy foods and lighter blue cheeses.

After a tough time recently, we’re stepping in to give something back to the grassroots sports clubs we love. Proud To Pitch In is an initiative from Greene King IPA, paying cash grants to grassroots and community sports clubs across the United Kingdom. Every pint we sell* will add 10p to our fund supporting local clubs from the ground up, providing them with the tools they need to continue to play the sport they love. From football, rugby and cricket to roller hockey or netball, we want to support as many local teams across the UK as we can with donations which can go a long way to keeping everyone in action.
