For the fourth year, Brewing News is holding its National IPA Championship. This "head to head" taste off features 128 India Pale Ales from US brewers. Judging is held over fours sessions in four cities with the winners in each bracket moving on to the next round.
It's no secret that I'm an IPA fan, and that's the reason I enjoy making my picks for NIPAC. It's fun to see how my favorites stands up to entries from other breweries. Many of the entries I've never tried, and some I've never heard of. But the best part of the contest? The top prize will be a free case of the 2011 NIPAC championship IPA.
The deadline to enter and make your predictions is February 13, 2011, 12:00 pm EST. Visit the National IPA Championship page for all the details.
