Vinnie Cilurzo says about the groundbreaking Blind Pig IPA:
"Blind Pig IPA was first brewed in Temecula, Calif. at my first brewery, Blind Pig Brewing Company, in 1994. This version was 92 bittering units and had very little malt with a very forward hop character. In December 1996, I left the brewery and my former business partner continued the brewery for a few years. After the original brewery closed and I was at Russian River Brewing Company, we were able to trademark the name and start making Blind Pig IPA again. The recipe has changed, in that we have added a couple of new hop varieties that were not in existence when the brewery in Temecula was open."
