    American IPA Bee Cave Brewery IPA

    I recently brewed this beer for my nephew's wedding that was held this last weekend. He had asked that I brew him an IPA somewhere in the 75 IBU range. I said that I could do that and settled on Ed's Bee Cave Brewery IPA. I subbed pilsner malt for the 2 row 'cause- well, 'cause that's...
