IPA Day was created in 2011, not by corporate breweries or big marketing machines, but by those that love and revel in craft beer and all the joy and camaraderie that it brings! Whether you’re a brewer, a craft beer fanatic, or just a casual fan, it’s a day for everyone to come together, raise a glass, and give a cheer to craft beer, and on this day specifically, the IPA style.

On Thursday, August 4th, join craft beer enthusiasts, breweries and bars across the globe in a collective toast to one of craft beer’s most iconic styles: the India Pale Ale. Here at the Couch, we’ve chosen some delicious IPAs to tap starting Thursday!

Why celebrate the IPA?
To quote Ashley Routson, aka The Beer Wench, one of the founders of #IPAday:

This illustrious style represents the pinnacle of brewing innovation with its broad spectrum of diverse brands, subcategories and regional flavor variations—making it the perfect style to galvanize craft beer’s social voice.

Confirmed to be on tap Thursday (check our menu list on the Untappd app, our website, and here for updates)…
