Shady Oak IPA

It was not so long ago that I started home brewing. (It feels like forever though) I started dabbling with home brew recipes that I found in different books. There was one particular recipe that I took a special interest in and over the years, kinda made my own. Originally the recipe was called “Oak Tree IPA”. After dark, dreary and raining brew day weather time after time, I decided to call it Shady Oak IPA. I didn’t want to give it a derogatory name, so this one lends more to the lazy day, relaxing under the shade of a big old oak. So “Shady Oak” was then created. I have been brewing it for many years now, I’ll have to check the calendar to see exactly how many.
