Woody and Wilcox had a great time premiering the brand new Woody & Wilcox IPA from NoDa Brewing Company earlier this week. Here's some words from head brewer Chad Henderson and reaction from the crowd that was on hand for the tasting.
Tuesday, June 19 Woody and Wilcox achieved a dream. On that date, a beer named after Woody and Wilcox was unveiled.

Woody & Wilcox IPA from NoDa Brewing will soon be available at a bar or restaurant near you in the Charlotte area. NoDa Brewing is one of the premier breweries in the emerging Charlotte craft beer scene.
The beer is an American IPA with an assertive hop character and balancing malty backbone. The hops used give it a piney, citrus laced aroma and a bright, earthy bittering finish. It uses Columbus, Magnum, Cascade and Santiam hops throughout the brew to acheive this hop character and uses four different malts to give it the golden amber colored body and the flavor of caramel along with some toasty bread notes. The alcohol by volume is six percent.
The good folks at NoDa Brewing have truly created a perfect beer for the most discerning beer lover and for the light beer drinker looking to try something new. There is a reason we let the experts handle this. You will soon taste that they know what they are doing.
An India Pale Ale or "IPA" is a style of pale ale that was created by English brewers in the 18th century. The style of ale could survive the long trip to India (most of the sub-continent of India was under British rule at the time). India Pale Ales usually have more alcohol and hops than other ales. The increased alcohol and hops preserved the beer, especially in a pre-refrigeration era.
Modern refrigeration, storage and transporation stopped the need to brew IPAs for long journeys, but the beer had already became popular in both Asia and in England.
IPAs are popular with modern beer lovers that seek the extra kick of hops that the style of beer provides. If you are a fan of IPAs, you will enjoy the Woody & Wilcox IPA. If you are new to the world of craft beer and are looking to broaden your horizons, the Woody & Wilcox IPA is a great beer to try.
So, when you're at a bar, look for this label. If you don't see it, ask for it.
IBUs (international bittering units):60
SRM (standard reference method, which is used to note the hue of the color): 9.7
