30 Days of IPA Returns to Donnely Group Pubs in August


30 Days of IPA returns in August for a 5th delicious year of hoptastic excellence          

A different IPA from a different brewery will be tapped every day throughout the month

For a fifth consecutive year, Donnelly Group is teaming up with an all-star list of North American brewers for 30 Days of IPA, a month-long celebration of the craft beer revolution’s signature beer style. Donnelly Group has taken National IPA Day, which falls on August 3rd, and turned it into a full month of great beers.

Beginning on August 1st, a delicious and different IPA will be tapped at opening time in one of nine participating Donnelly Group locations and will be poured and featured until it the keg is empty. The widest range of IPA styles will be showcased during the month, from mouth-puckering hop bombs to well-rounded hazy IPAs, from wild yeast fermented beers to rye IPAs.

Donnelly Group Bar & Beverage Director Trevor Kallies has worked for months rounding up a world-class list of beers which includes several never tapped before in Vancouver. “30 Days of IPA is one of my favourite events of the year, and the addition of hazy and tropical fruit IPAs to the list shows that there are still new and exciting IPAs to look forward to in the future.”

The schedule begins on August 1st at Library Square with the tapping of a keg of Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion IPA, a classic IPA which is always brewed with experimental hop mixes. This time the influential California brewer is using a mix of hops from the up-and-coming growing region of Michigan. Two days later, IPA Day on August 3rd will be celebrated with a keg of Steel & Oak Towers & Trains Early Grey IPA tapped at Three Brits,

The month This year we have coordinated a variety of one-offs, and even secured a few never-before-tapped IPAs from some legendary breweries. We have even once again locked in a keg of the elusive Driftwood Raised by Wolves IPA to be tapped on August 31st at Butcher & Bullock as the wrap-up celebration of 30 Days of IPA.
