Five Different IPA Brews Offered For $6, All Day

Thursday, August 2
11 a.m. – midnight

Franklin Tap, located in the loop, will join beer enthusiasts across the globe in a collective toast to one of craft beer’s most iconic styles: India Pale Ale.  On Thursday, August 2, the urban tavern will celebrate “IPA Day” by offering five different IPA brews for $6 each. Draft, can and bottle selections include Revolution Anti-Hero, Bell’s Two Hearted, Finch’s Threadless, Ska Modus Hoperandi and Barfly IPA.  Join the party and try one (or five) of these featured IPAs while enjoying Chef Glenn Pistario’s diverse menu of bar snacks, sandwiches and tavern favorites. Frankin Tap’s sidewalk patio will be open, weather permitting.

Founded in 2011, IPA Day is a universal movement created to unite the voices of craft beer enthusiasts, bloggers, and brewers worldwide, using social media as the common arena for connecting the conversation. IPA Day is not the brainchild of a corporate marketing machine, nor is it meant to serve any particular beer brand. IPA Day is opportunity for all breweries, bloggers, businesses and consumers to connect and share their love of craft beer. It is a time for the entire craft beer culture to combine forces and advocate craft beer through increased education and global awareness. Why Celebrate the IPA? This illustrious style represents the pinnacle of brewing innovation with its broad spectrum of diverse brands, subcategories, and regional flavor variations—making it the perfect style to galvanize craft beer’s social voice. Beer enthusiasts are encouraged to use the #IPADay hashtag to make this year’s IPA Day even more viral, showing the world that craft beer is more than a trend.
