Happy International IPA Day!

Our ALL-TIME favorite IPA, Bell's Brewery Two-Hearted
(Comstock, MI)
We talk a lot about the message on the Free Beer Movement website, "American soccer", but sometimes we forget that the medium is just as important to the cause. Today is one of several "beer holidays" celebrated in the United States called "International IPA Day".

What is IPA Day you ask?
International IPA Day is a grassroots movement to unite the voices of craft beer enthusiasts, bloggers, and brewers worldwide through social media. On Thursday August 4th, craft beer drinkers across the social sphere and across the globe will raise pints in a collective toast to one of craft beer’s most iconic styles: the India Pale Ale. This celebrated style represents the pinnacle of brewing innovation with its broad spectrum of diverse brands, subcategories, and regional flavor variations - making it the perfect style to galvanize craft beer’s social voice.
Started by  two beer writers Ashley V Routson and Ryan A Ross this is the first annual celebration of the event.

What do you need to do?

1. Track down your favorite IPA’s, ones you’ve been meaning to try, and ones you’ve never heard of; share them with friends and share your thoughts with the world.

2. Feel free to Tweet pictures of your favorite IPAs to us on Twitter or post them on our Facebook page
