Same great beer. Brand new story. Shy Giant IPA.


When we started Fernson, we loved the idea that we could create beer that would help bring people together. And when you bring people together they share stories. They tell tales. They create memories. Every beer we make has a story behind it. After two and a half years in business, we’ve set ourselves to help develop the stories around Fernson and the people who drink our beer.

Shy Giant IPA is no different.


At 7% ABV and 70 IBUs, it’s a big beer. It’s brewed with a healthy dose of Belma® and Centennial hops, and dry hopped with Mosaic® hops. It sounds like a giant--and it is--but it’s a giant with a lighter side. Grapefruit and citrus flavors create a beautiful nose followed by a balance of hop character and maltiness. This is a beer that doesn’t need to beat its chest to prove how strong it is. This is a beer that understands bigness without balance will only make you stumble. Sometimes it’s the shy giant who stands tallest.

Same great beer. Brand new story.
