Three Pint Stance – Is IPA over?

Lately, I’ve been hearing the same basic question at our tasting room and at brew fests over and over and it goes something like this: “So, do you think this hop craze is over?” Some call it by different names, some sound exasperated, others more worried, but the question remains. Is the IPA still the dominant style in the craft beer market and will it remain so?

Obviously, the answers are mostly conjecture and will vary depending on who you talk to about it, but since this is my column, here is my cold, dry-hopped take.

Take the question in its simplest form: is IPA over? No, definitely not.

12 Days of Hops

Nocturnem Draft Haus celebrates anniversary in best possible way

BANGOR We are currently in the midst of a momentous occasion. In order to celebrate the upcoming anniversary of the existence of Nocturnem Draft Haus, owner Gene Beck is offering the 12 Days of Hops. The event actually began on April 5 and continues for, obviously, 12 days, culminating with the one year anniversary party on April 19 with the premier of Nocturnem's own signature brew Hops Junky, crafted by Black Bear Brewing.

Beck explained that the Darft Haus's anniversary actually falls on April 16, but since that was a Monday they decided to push the actual celebration out to Thursday.

'We decided to do an event with all hoppy beers and then it turns into two weeks of hoppy beers for our anniversary,' he said.

Beck said that this is a perfect time to try beers that may be outside your normal comfort zone. The hoppy beverages that will be on tap (at least six each day) will be varied in intensity.
