Portland Open Sources Gigabit IPA

Portlanders are serious about three things:  Beer, technology and our community.  To continue to let Google know we are the right choice for their Google Fiber to home network, we decided to open source the Gigabit IPA recipe that Hopworks created.  This will allow other cities the opportunity to brew this fine beer.  The code for the beer or recipe is available on Google’s open source code website and below.

We’re “opening the source code” so you can home brew a Gigabit IPA all your own.”
said the Mayor of Portland, Oregon, Sam Adams.

Today I assisted my friend’s Ezra Johnson-Greenough & James Blum from the New School Beer Blog to brew the first home brew version of the Gigabit IPA.  I enlisted help from these experienced home brewers since it has been nearly two years since I have home brewed.  As I am writing this post we are still in the brewing process of this hoppy brew and we look forward to comparing this to the Hopworks version.  If you are interested in brewing this beer the recipe is below.
