Trader Joe's Does it Again

Trader Joe's, home of the recession-buster Simpler Times Lager $3.99 six-pack, introduces Mission St. IPA. The IPA is the third beer in the Mission St. series, joining the Blonde Ale and Pale Ale (Gold medal winner at the 2008 Great American Beer Fest). Here's a reason to get excited about this beer: Mission St. is actually Firestone Walker Brewing, maker of Union Jack IPA, which also won gold at the GABF. These guys know what they're doing! Another reason to get excited: since the beer is made just for Trader Joe's, it retails for a Trader Joe's price- $5.99 a six-pack. That's the cheapest IPA out there right now, and it worth a shot given its pedigree!

I can't wait to try it! I used to by the Mission Street Pale Ale on a regular basis.
