August 1. It’s a day each year when we pause to remember the brilliant men who loaded hops into beer to preserve it on a long voyage on ships to India. We salute you, o’ brave and tenacious travelers. And, we thank you! Your invention far surpasses the usefulness of things such as wheels, pulleys, levels, and even filtered water.
Yes, it’s on this day when we profess our love of IPAs! Say it loud, say it proud: I drink India Pale Ales! And, to help you fuel up this day, we’re providing you with a list of IPAs made locally that you should try. Also, please vote below by Thursday (8/8) for your favorite CT IPA. We’ll announce a first, second, third, and OmNomCT choice winner next Friday, 8/9.
