Annual IPA Day celebration set for Aug. 1

by Nick Trougakos Published: July 15, 2013

Like hops? Of course you do. Well you can certainly get your fill of hoppy beer at the annual IPA Day celebration. This year’s festivities are set for the night of Thursday, Aug. 1 at TapWerks.

TapWerks General Manager Greg Powell said he expects a wide array of specially made hopped-out creations at this year’s event.

While a great deal of specifics are not yet available, IPA fans can expect firkins/casks from Choc, COOP, Bricktown Brewery, Marshall, Mustang and Roughtail, and possibly other brewers as well.

The Bricktown Brewery offering will likely be a peach IPA, and word has it that Roughtail will feature its new double IPA Hoptometrist, with the beer run through a hop-filled Randall.

I’ll pass along more details as they come in. Be sure to make plans to arrive early, as the most anticipated beers usually run dry pretty quickly on IPA Day.

Daily Pints

-The weekly pint night at McNellie’s OKC tonight is Rogue Hazelnut. At McNellie’s Tulsa, it’s Dead Armadillo Amber. And at McNellie’s Norman, it’s Unibroue La Fin du Monde.

-Mustang Brewing Co.’s fourth anniversary celebration is this week. The big event is set for Saturday night at Wormy Dog. Prior to that, McNellie’s Tulsa is hosting a Mustang pint night on Thursday featuring an IPA rescued from the wreckage of the OKCity Brewing Cooperative.
