Saint Archer Releases Very Limited Run of Double IPA
San Diego, CA – Saint Archer Brewing Company is proud to announce a (very) limited run of their Double IPA, a popular staple at their tasting room. The beer is brewed in limited quantities to ensure its enjoyed as fresh as possible. This 400 case run (available in 22oz bottles and on draft) will be limited to Southern California and might give fans outside the San Diego area a deeper look into Brewmaster Yiga Miyashiro’s diverse skill set.
“This beer encompasses everything we love about Double India Pale Ales—HOPS!” explains Miyashiro. “We used a simple two-row base malt as a vehicle to bring a burst of hops to your palate. A healthy dose of Chinook, Simcoe, and Citra is the reason we love brewing this beer.”

Since Saint Archer debuted its Double during San Diego Beer Week in 2013, it has built quite a following among the Craft Beer Enthusiasts and Connoisseurs alike:
thebrewbuzz.com: “A bouquet of hops burst out of the bottle upon opening. The Double IPA pours smooth and boasting a sexy golden body crowned with a crisp white head. The nose is full of tropical mango and citrus scents that start to make my mouth water. Delicious and hoppy, with strong flavors of mangoes and citrus, and finishes dry, crisp and bitter. This Double IPA is legit… Hopheads alike are going to love this beer!”
San Diego Reader: “The 8.3% ABV Double IPA bursts with citrus and tropical fruit, bringing on everything those familiar with Miyashiro’s work would hope for.”
“This Double IPA has kind of become our cult ‘beer geek beer’ and is getting tons of great reviews,” says Miyashiro. “After they’ve tried it on tap, people froth over this one on social media. Truth is, if we could get enough specialty hops we’d make it full time, but the hop requirement keeps it very exclusive. These 400 cases will get snapped up quick…”
Expect to see this beer for a very limited time in a few specialty grocery outlets (Whole Foods, Total Wine, and Trader Joe’s), plus local liquor stores and on tap at select bars through southern and central California.
