Heads up craft beer lovers!
This Thursday, Aug. 3rd, is National IPA Day and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate! How are we going to celebrate you ask?
The fun starts at 6 p.m.!


Brew Dog Dead Pony.  ABV: 3.80% –  40 IBU:  This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That’s why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule.

Dog Fish Head Flesh and Blood. ABV: 7.50% – 45 IBU: An honest to goodness IPA brewed with a bounty of real citrus including lemon flesh, blood orange juice plus orange and lemon peel. A combination of Warrior, Centennial, and a rare experimental hop to perfectly complement the citrus ingredients and flavor. Flesh & Blood balances the resinous hoppy characteristics of an American IPA with the explosive, zesty fruitiness and subtle dry tartness of citrus to deliver a highly quaffable ale that’s incredibly unique and lovely to down the whole year round.

Fat Head’s Head Hunter. ABV: 7.50% – 33 IBU is an aggressively dry-hopped, West Coast-Style IPA with a huge hop display of pine, grapefruit, citrus and pineapple. A punch-you-in-the-mouth brew for those who truly love their hops! Uncivilized? Yes. Aggressive? Absolutely. Award Winning? Hell yes!

Jackie O’s Hop Ryot. ABV: 6.50% This is a favorite among the brewers at Jackie O’s. Hop Ryot has a unique character thanks to the use of Rye malt and exclusively Simcoe hops. The rye malt adds some soft spicy notes to the beer, and a generous amount of Simcoe hops adds that big sticky-citrus aroma and flavor. It finishes very dry and pleasant, beckoning another sip.

MadTree Entropic Theory. ABV: 7.50% -70 IBU. From Chaos Emerges Order. From Fermentation Emerges Beer. This IPA hits you with huge aromas of orange, peach, and apricot.. The nose is followed by a smooth bitterness and soft mouthfeel as it delivers tropical fruit flavors.

In Physics, entropic theories generally refer to forces that emerge from ever-increasing entropy. Jargon aside, Entropic Theory (the beer) refers to a unique feature of all these entropic forces – they are chaotic and unpredictable at infinitesimally tiny distances, yet develop ordered patterns over large distances. This emergence of order from chaos can also be seen in the fermentation process, which involves the chaotically complex conversion of wort to beer by yeast.

Stone IPA. Now one of the most well-respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy, piney hop flavors and aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra-hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it. ABV 6.9%
