I'm sure lots of places are doing something to celebrate; here's two press releases I've received.
First, from Independence Brewing:
International #IPA DayOn August 2nd breweries and hopheads around the globe will unite to celebrate the hoppy goodness of IPAs. We certainly don’t need any more reasons to enjoy Stash IPA – it’s incredibly delicious. But we like to party with other hopheads. So we have organized events kicking off on International #IPA Day leading up to our 1st Saturday Tour. Break out your Stash IPA t-shirt and join us in celebrating the mighty hop. Get special swag if you’re spotted by our brewery crew.
- August 2nd - #IPA Day @ Flying Saucer in Austin and The Friendly Spot in San Antonio
- August 3rd - Stash IPA cask at Baker Street Pub
- August 4th - Stash IPA cask at Red’s Porch
Then, from the Flying Saucer chain:
Flying Saucer Draught Emporium today announced it will participate in International #IPADay on Thursday, Aug. 2 at all Flying Saucer locations throughout Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina.
International #IPADay is a grassroots movement created to unite the voices of craft beer enthusiasts, bloggers and brewers worldwide, using social media as the common arena for connecting the conversation. The event calls for craft beer drinkers from across the social sphere and around the globe to raise pints in a collective toast to one of craft beer’s most iconic styles − the India Pale Ale. Participants are encouraged to share photos, videos, blog posts, tasting notes, recipes and thoughts with the world through any and all social media platforms available to them, using the event’s title hashtag to post and follow the celebration happening around the world.
Flying Saucer locations will celebrate the occasion with specials on India Pale Ales from various breweries, rare tappings, special flights and food specials, all varying by location. The Saucer is also partnering with the social media app Untappd to offer an “IPA Day at the Saucer” badge to attendees.
