30 Days of IPA

It has been a fair bit of time in the works, but we’ve finally solidified our calendar for our new, month-long event – 30 Days of IPA.

Here’s how it works. We have 10 draught locations. Each will be featuring 2-3 different IPAs throughout the month of August. 10 venues, 30 days, 30 breweries and 30 DIFFERENT IPAs. A new beer each day at a different pub. What more could the beer enthusiast ask for?

Throughout the month we’ll be tweeting reminders and updates as to which beer is being tapped where. You can also refer to the handy little Calendar below. Just search for #30DaysofIPA and you’ll be off and running. Halfway through the month we have a very special guest to help us celebrate. Andrew Gerson, executive chef of Brooklyn Brewery will be joining up with our very own Development Chef Alvin Pillay for a collaboration IPA dinner at the Queen’s Republic. A lot of these beers have never been seen in BC, some are one-time only casks, some are one-off brews we’ve been saving for such an event.

Any way you slice it – we’re gonna drink a lot of IBUs this August.
