National IPA Day

National IPA Day!

Thursday, August 4th is the HOPPIEST day of the year!

C’mon out to celebrate National IPA Day 2016! We’ll have a few special IPA’s on draft and others in bottles/cans to enjoy!

India Pale Ale, also referred to as IPA, is a hoppy pale ale that has become the most popular beer style in the craft industry. The style originated in England thanks to breweries hoping to export their beer to the colony of India. These breweries needed to create an ale that could survive the long journey by boat from England. So they created a beer with more malt to increase the alcohol content and more hops, which act as a natural preservative. It just so happened that the resulting beer was beloved by expats and quickly spread from there!

The Beer Mile Relay!

See you on the course!!!

“For the uninitiated, an official beer mile race is four quarter-mile laps with four full-sized beers interspersed between each lap. Over time, it has become an underground running and beer-drinking phenomenon. Today there’s even a site devoted to chronicling beer mile performances all over the world at http://www.beermile.com/….”
