National IPA Day  – Some Good Deals | Fireman Mike | Old Town Post

HopSlam

What better way to celebrate a Thursday than with National IPA day?  IPA is the acronym for India pale ale. It is generally a more bitter beer due to the addition of various amounts and kinds of hops.

Founded in 2011, IPA Day is a universal movement created to unite the voices of craft beer enthusiasts, bloggers and brewers worldwide, using social media as the common arena for connecting the conversation.

Some of the specials deals in and around O’Town follow:

World Market stores will be offering 20% off of all beer purchases today through August 9, 2015.
