“Like any beer, one style cannot be judged by one beer alone. You should always try to branch out, and you may find a hidden gem in the bunch,” said Beck. “Some are really grapefruity. You may find you like an English IPA, which tend to be less aggressive. These can expand one's horizons.”
Of course, for those of us who already love hops, there will be lots and lots of hops to be had.
“Those of us that do love hops, it's all about hops all the time,” he said. “The bigger, the better – the better the stronger. Which led us to brewing our own IPA. It seemed like natural transitions.”
There will be many beers to be tried. Beck said they did their best to find many specialty beers for the occasion.
“We tried to get every IPA we could get our hands on, and some are harder to get than others,” he said. “Some are limited availability. It should be a good lineup and keep people happy.
“If it doesn't, there's something wrong, and they can go back to drinking Bud Lite,” he joked. “This is just going to be one of those fun events that we're patterning ourselves into. It's just another fun thing to check out and chill out.”
