August first was both Herman Melville’s birthday and national IPA day.
Best believe I popped open a few bottles of my favorite hop-stuffed ales (pouring out a splash for Ahab) and flipped through the pages of “Billy Budd”.
I was pleased to learn others were celebrating in similar fashion all across the country.
What a holiday!
(as a sad side-note, a skunky Simcoe IPA is like unwrapping a Christmas present and finding a pack of underwear)
