The Beer's Story

The Elusive Mel's Hole
The inspiration of this beer began before Iron Horse Brewery even existed, back in 1997, when a man called "Mel Waters" appeared on a radio show, called Coast to Coast with Art Bell. Mel claimed he owned a property a few miles west of Ellensburg, Washington that contained a magical, mysterious hole of at least 80,000 feet. Waters claimed that the US government seized this property once they learned of the magical properties. To date, no one has been able to find this hole. Maybe now is the time. Just like the urban legend, discovering Mel's Magic IPA took us down several roads, which led to a few dead ends and start overs. After 5 months of exploration and recipe testing, we have found a flavor, aroma, and taste profile that we find magical in this new, year round IPA. Let us know where you find it.
