Style Night – IPAs

Style Night at whichcraft

The Beer Museum will be setting up the traveling roadshow version of the museum’s exhibits and will dive deep into the style’s history, origins, and how it’s brewed. WhichCraft’s very own Certified Cicerone Chuck Stephens will also provide in-depth knowledge about the ingredients used in each beer and tasting techniques.

Expect 3-4 oz pours of 4 different IPAs plus a special bottle or two as we discuss them as a group. Must be 21+.
