In the craft beer world, there’s one type of beer that is regarded to be the sweet juice of the microbrew gods – IPAs.
On Tuesday, March 5th, hop heads will unite for a chance to sample some of the country’s best IPAs, including – GASP! – Bell’s Hop Slam. Hal & Al’s, located at 1297 Parsons Ave., will host the evening’s event starting at 4 p.m. and lasting until the kegs run dry.
For a mere $18, attendees will enjoy 10 samples of IPAs, as well as a special firkin of Founders Centennial. As if your belly full of hoppy goodness wasn’t enough to take home, Hal & Al’s is also including a pint glass to proudly display in your home.
