Merchant du vin Adds Green’s Gluten Free IPA to Portfolio

Seattle, WA — Merchant du Vin is pleased and proud to announce that a fifth variety of Green’s gluten-free Belgian beer has joined the Merchant du Vin portfolio:  Green’s Gluten-Free India Pale Ale.

Green’s recent domination at beer competitions (the 2014 World Beer Cup, US Open, World Beer Championships, FreeFrom Food awards, more) and growing demand for hoppy IPAs has inspired this dynamic, exciting addition, which will appear in stores and on beer menus across the US this summer.
Green’s IPA is made from gluten-free ingredients, like Green’s Dry-Hopped Lager, Discovery Amber, Endeavour Dubbel, and Quest Tripel: sorghum, millet, buckwheat, rice, water, hops, and yeast.  It offers an inviting amber-red color with full body. Aroma is bold hops with herbal and piney notes; flavor is nutty and firmly bitter with hints of caramel.  Brewed at one of Belgium’s most respected and high-tech breweries, De Proef in Gent, Green’s IPA has an OG of 1.051; 6.0% ABV; and 60 IBUs.

Pair it with Gluten-free pasta or rice pilaf; try with spicy Indian or Asian cuisine: high hopping levels make this a superb pairing with spicy hot entrées.

Green’s gluten-free beers are sold in a case of twelve 500 ml (16.9 oz.) bottles.  Look for Green’s IPA starting August 1, 2014.

In addition to Green’s, Merchant du Vin imports Samuel Smith’s from England; Traquair House from Scotland; Ayinger and Certified Organic Pinkus beers from Germany;  Lindemans lambics, Du Bocq and the Trappist beers of Orval, Westmalle, and Rochefort from Belgium.
