IPA Beers

India pale ale (IPA) is a hoppy beer style within the broader category of pale ale.

Among the first breweries known to export beer to India was George Hodgson's Bow Brewery on the Middlesex-Essex border. Bow Brewery beers became popular among East India Company traders in the late 18th century because of the brewery's location near the East India Docks in Blackwall. The export style of pale ale, which had become known as India pale ale, developed in England around 1840, later became a popular product there.

IPAs have a long history in Canada and the United States, and many breweries there produce a version of the style.
