International IPA Day Returns Thursday, August 1st

31 July 2013 No Comment

Come down to Cobb Lane on Thursday, August 1st to make the pub your hop headquarters for the 2013 installment of International IPA Day!

Founded in 2011, IPA Day is a universal movement created to unite the voices of craft beer enthusiasts, bloggers and brewers worldwide, using social media as the common arena for connecting the conversation about one of the world’s most popular beer styles.  The past two years have seen hundreds of events, tastings, festivals and dinners hosted around the world in celebration of IPA Day.  Last year, roughly 12 thousand tweets from more than eight thousand people were sent out over a 24-hour period, yielding over 10 million impressions for the #IPAday hashtag on Twitter.  This year’s goal is to go even bigger, and we invite you to join all of us at the Clyde to be a part of the action.

To make sure we do this beer holiday some justice, we scoured the area to get our hands on the best possible selection of IPAs we could.  Without further ado, here is our IPA Day draught and bottle lists:

Thursdays at the pub happen to be our weekly beer & food pairings, so we figured we might as include the pairing as part of our IPA Day festivities.  Since very few things go better with this beer style than the flavors of Indian cuisine, we have prepared the following Indian themed dishes to be the perfect accompaniment for any IPA that catches your eye:

  • Green Curry Chicken with Jasmine Rice: Lightly braised, sustainably farmed chicken breast in a coconut milk and kaffir lime green curry served over lemongrass jasmine rice
  • Hot Wings tossed in a special sauce of dried ancho chilies and paprika

We are very excited to be a part of this year’s IPA Day, and we hope you all can join us for some fresh IPAs, plenty of #IPAday Tweets and Instagram posts, and just plain ol’ good times this Thursday.  Together we can make The J. Clyde the place to be in Alabama for this hopped up holiday!
