McGillin's 1860 IPA

McGillin's marked its 150th Anniversary (in 2010) with the launch of its own beer, called McGillin’s 1860 IPA. It is made by Stoudt’s Brewing, brewer of the tavern’s two house beers: McGillin’s Real Ale and McGillin’s Genuine Lager. McGillin’s 1860 IPA, is unfiltered, as it would have been in the 1800s, and is made from a secret recipe with multiple hop varieties including centennial and amarillo. A crisp hop flavor and aroma with a slight maltness and medium body round off this quaffable ale.

McGillin’s 1860 IPA is available, on tap, at McGillin’s, the Great American Pub in Narberth and Stoudt's in Adamstown. It is available bottled at McGillin's & Capital Grille in Center City Philadelphia. Only 200 cases were brewed. It can be purchased at: Springfield Beer Distributor, 27th & South streets, (215) 546-7301; Bella Vista Beer Distributors, 755 S 11th St, Philadelphia, (215) 627-6465; Fishtown Beverage, 1511 Frankford Avenue, (215) 634-4883. In 6-packs at: The Foodery,  837 North 2nd Street at Poplar Street, (215) 238-6077 & 324 South 10th Street at Pine Street, (215) 928-1111.
