Happy International IPA Day!

by Nick Trougakos Published: August 4, 2011

It’s like Christmas in August folks! Well, if you took away the oppressive heat. And added Christmas lights and the Bing Crosby station on my Pandora app. You get the idea. Today is International IPA Day! So raise a glass of the hoppiest brew you can find. Wondering how you can celebrate the occasion? Your best bet is the IPA Day celebration tonight at Tapwerks.

The bar will feature as many as 25 different kinds of IPAs and IPA-infused culinary offerings. In addition, Choc, COOP and Marshall have produced special firkins to commemorate the event.

-Choc: Double black IPA

-COOP: Special dry-hopped F5 IPA

-Marshall: Cask-conditioned, dry-hopped Atlas IPA

The firkins will be tapped at 5:15 p.m.
