Sauce Hound Aug. Newsletter: More Than 80 Ways to Celebrate IPA Day

saucehound header

For the last few years, the first Thursday in August has been recognized around the world as International IPA Day. It’s a day to celebrate the hop-heavy India Pale Ale style that has played a major role in the meteroic rise of craft beer. Where a mere decade ago a BC-made IPA was a rarity, there are very few local breweries that don’t make one.

The style has become so popular, in fact, that brewers are doing all kinds of interesting and experimental versions of the style. Today, IPAs literally come in all different colours (white, black, red, etc.) and are made both big (imperial/double) and small (India Session Ale). We have more than 80 versions of the style—which is characterized by pronounced floral/fruity/spicy hop aromatics and a crisp, bitter finish—from around the world currently in stock and new ones are always arriving. We have an up-to-date list below, organized by style. You could literally celebrate IPA Day with a different brew every day for nearly three months!

We love IPAs and always have a great lineup on hand. We even have an entire section of our fridge dedicated to 6-packs and 4-packs of the style. And we have many other 650ml bombers chilled, as well. We can get you set up to celebrate IPA Day in style—today or any day.
