Beer of the Week: Julian Brewing Company 1870 IPA

A new reason to take a jaunt up to Julian



India Pale Ale (6.4% ABV)

Pie is, and always will be king in the lovely getaway town of Julian, but there’s a new reason to take a jaunt up State Route 79—quality craft beer. A power quartet of craft beer industry players took over the Bailey Wood Pit Barbecue last year, installing a brewhouse in the circa 1930s garage of the historic Bailey House, which is the home base for the new Julian Brewing Company. One of the first brews out of their fermenter is 1870 IPA, a beer with luminous piney zing, fruity undertones and a dry finish. Light on the palate, but big on flavor, it’s built to be approachable for craft beer rookies, yet a legit for contender for IPA aficionados.

Available at: 1870 is one of a trio of house beers that includes a pale ale and a stout, which are offered year around at the Bailey Wood Pit Barbecue (2307 Main Street). The sharp pine and citrus notes of this beer cut right through the heavy smoke on any of the recently revamped spot’s meaty offerings.
