JPA was created as a means to remember John-Paul Cassidy, a true legend and passionate advocate for flavoursome beer, who passed away earlier this year.
Created by the mighty powerhouses of northerners Cloudwater and the Bagby Beer Company from California, and supported by Full Fat, the West Coast IPA is a truly delicious collaboration and a fitting tribute to JP. Square Root Production Manager Jake wanted to join in the brewing celebration of his friend JP's life, and so here we have our shandy ode to JP.
Containing all the love of the original beer, minus the alcohol, plus our signature style blended in, with delicious, characterful ingredients specific to West Coast USA: Meyer Lemons and Simco & Columbus Hops.
Every penny of profit made from the sale of this crisp, complex, non-alcoholic shandy goes to Headway, to support people dealing with the hardships related to brain injury.
Read more on the brewing collaboration at the Cloudwater Blog and you can still buy a few cans of JPA beer at one or two great beer spots.
