It’s International IPA Day


It’s International IPA Day today–which is every day for me–so bring out the hops. I’m in the Washington, D.C. area this week for a wedding and have already ticked off two local IPAs: DC Brau Corruption IPA (delicious!) and Devils Backbone Eight Point IPA (delicious, and finally bottled!).

What other local D.C., Virginia and Maryland IPAs do you think I should check out? What are you cracking open today?
