bryan-roth-verticalOne Beer to Rule Them All: IPA and Our Journey of Hops
2 p.m.

The beer community recognizes about a hundred different styles of beer, so why is it that IPA reigns supreme for American drinkers?

Looking past IPA’s classic descriptor of “bitter,” explore what other flavors you can find with this favorite style.
