Black&White: Mosaic Megaphone


Mark Burford, co-owner and brewmaster of Blue Point Brewing Company, addresses the crowd at Cask Ales Festival on April 13. The megaphoned speech concluded with a countdown for a cask-tap of Mosaic IPA, a 6.50% ABV IPA brewed with all Mosaic hops.

“It’s a very dry beer with a strong hop backbone and has very floral, almost pungent-like qualities,” says Jim Richards, senior brewer at Blue Point Brewing Company. “I am very happy with how it came out. It’s very enjoyable for the IPA lover.”

Cask Ales Festival was the first appearance of Mosaic IPA.
