California Gold Rush and all those who Go West! Go West! IPA™ MALT 2-Row Pale HOPS Apollo, Bravo DRY HOPS Citra, Equinox, Calypso, Eureka! AVAILABILITY Year-round in bottles, cans, and on draught The California Gold Rush compelled thousands to Go West! “to see the elephant,” a metaphor for the doggedly optimistic risk-taking linked then and now with America’s intensified pursuit of happiness. As early as 1849, India Pale Ale—prepared by British brewers for export to India by adding dry hops to barrels of hoppy ale—was also going west, from England around the Horn to San Francisco. In 1975, Anchor— America’s first craft brewery—led the modern revival of dry-hopped handmade ales. Fast-forward to Go West! IPA™, made with 2-row pale barley malt and dry-hopped with a unique blend of 4 American hops.

Go West!, where the impossible is possible.
