This Thursday, August 6 marks the 5th annual IPA Day. IPAs are as popular as ever, and IPA Day is a celebration of these sought-after hop bombs of the craft beer world. Celebrating IPA Day is simple. Grab a bottle, can, growler, or mug of your favorite hoppy brew and check in using #IPADay on your favorite social media platform.
If you don’t have any IPAs in your fridge, these bars will have some fantastic IPAs on tap for the occasion. Let us know your favorite IPA on Facebook
