Date/ Time: Thursday, June 27, from 4:00–9:00 p.m.

Details: Tropical Paradise Imperial IPA is baaaaack! This bright fruity, hoppy IIPA brewed with Citra and Amarillo hops, fresh mangoes and ginger was our first seasonal ever brewed 7 years ago for our opening day! These were the days when Citra hops had just become popular, “fruited IPA” wasn’t part of the beer vocabulary, and IPAs still had IBUs! This beer quickly became one of our most sought after experimental beers, and we’ll be so glad to have is back on tap
