The town of Millstadt, Illinois has strong roots as a farming and milling community. At one time the town boasted three mills, and in a rare arrangement, these three mills shared the same millpond.
In communities such as Millstadt, the millpond was a place for fun. During the summertime residents of the community would swim, fish, have picnics, and hold family gatherings at the millpond. In the wintertime, they would skate on the frozen water and sled on its banks. Millponds became the first, defacto, city parks.
In 2021, this historic link to water became Millpond Brewing & Incubator‘s muse for their “Body Of Water” series of New England Style IPA’s and Pale Ales. The newest series release, Fjord, came out this week.
Fjord is a double dry-hopped Hazy IPA (7% ABV) and the eighth release in the series. It’s double dry hopped with Idaho 7, Idaho Gem, and Mosaic hops which give it a zesty flavor of marmalade, and cherries, with a complimentary amount of dankness.
You can purchase Fjord at their online store, or pick up some at the brewery 308 E. Washington St, Millstadt, IL 62260.
