Hoppy IPA Day!
This Thursday, August 4th is National IPA Day! Being a hop-head myself I cannot wait to spend my Thursday night trying different IPAs to celebrate this fantastic… necessary holiday. The craft beer scene is exploding with so many varieties of IPAs, there’s one for everyone! Just last year, the most-entered category in the Great American Beer Festival was the American-Style India Pale Ale with 336 entries and the Imperial India Pale Ale in second place with 208 entries.
So this Thursday hop into your favorite brewpub, brewery, bar, or fridge, and grab some delicious floral, piney, hoppy buds. If you need some motivation towards a great pick, here are some of my favorites…
Stone Brewery– Cali-Belgique IPA
Manayunk Brewery– Daydreamin’ Session IPA
Cypress Brewing – Insane in the Grain
Founders Brewing Company – All Day IPA
Ballast Point Brewing Company – Sculpin American IPA
Weyerbacher Brewing Co. – Double Simcoe IPA
Vail Brewing Company– Tourist Trap
River Horse – Hippotizing IPA
Carton Brewing – 077XX
Dogfish Brewery – (60, 75, 90, or 120 Minute)
Have a Hoppy Day,
