Commonhouse Ales will hold a launch party Saturday (Feb. 3) at Barley Hopsters in Delaware for its new IPA For The People.

The beer will be available in draft and bottles.

Commonhouse founder Lenny Kolada said he approached this beer differently, allowing beer fans to sample and vote on three different IPAs at sister brewery Smokehouse Brewing Co. in Columbus. This recipe won the competition.

"Hundreds of people participated," Kolada said in a prepared statement. "We randomly selected some of these folks and recruited others randomly using social media to conduct a full tasting panel. Thirty-five beer geeks sampled and gave us opinions. The result is being bottled today. We couldn’t be more excited.”

He described this beer as balanced between bitterness and aromatics.

“The nose on this one is amazing," he said. "It makes you want to dive right in.”

IPA For The People will be available year-round beer, joining Commonhouse's flagship Six One For Good Ale.

Commonhouse also is working on some seasonal beers for the summer, including a pre-Prohibition all-malt pilsner, Kolada said.
