ITHACA Brewing Co. makes a summer splaSH !

It's always fun when New Beers enter into the market.
Last last Tuesday ( yes, I am way behind on posting this) Ithaca made a splash on our city's beer scene as Brewmaster, Jeff O'Neill and owner Dan Mitchell brought the "Spirit of the Fingerlakes" to 13th and Drury at Mcgillins.

They invited Bar owners, managers, and tenders, beer writers, and local brewers to come celebrate their arrival.

They had their "Flower Power" on cask which was my go to for the night.

I had just come from Zahav where Limonanas was the beverage of choice.
Too much bourbon on a Tuesday doesn't make for a good Wednesday.

It was so nice to have a beer. A really great one at that.

The Flower Power is their IPA...A really nice Floral note (simcoe, palisade) and way too smooth for 8%.

They've gone with Penn for Distribution.


  1. weird- i was there watching the euro in the afternoon and didn't see any sign of this:(

    do you know if it's going to be on tap anywhere?

  2. I'm equally as excited about this!

    can't get enough Cascazilla and Flower Power.

    right now Matt even has Ithaca 10 (DIPA) on tap at Capones!
