IPA Day is back for another year on August 1st. Across the country, beer drinkers will be hoisting a glass of an IPA to celebrate a style almost ubiquitous at American craft beer bars and stores. The IPA is the most popular craft beer style in the U.S., based both on consumption and the number of entries annually into the IPA categories at the Great American Beer Festival. And we love a good IPA, and we’ll be celebrating on August 1st with the hashtag #IPADay.
But sometimes we worry that our obsession with the IPA has gone too far.
