The Hophouse’s 2020 IPA Challenge is officially in full swing! We’ll be collecting ballots for your choice of favorite Oregon IPA all of the way up until Friday the 31st. It’s been a doozy of a competition this year! Of the twelve beers being represented, we have two past challenge winners. Both Breakside Wanderlust IPA and Migration Straight Outta Portland IPA (2018 and 2019 winners, respectively) have some strong competition this year. Self-distributed breweries such as Baerlic and Montavilla are giving established favorites like Pfriem and Barley Brown’s a strong run for their money. You really can’t go wrong with this flight of stacked hoppy goodness. We’re doing physical ballots only this year, so come on by The Hophouse and make your vote count! The top nominated IPA will be our ‘house beer’ for the remainder of 2020. This is a year of very important elections, so let’s get it started Portland-style with submitting your beer ballots!
We will be throwing an IPA challenge 2020 reveal party Saturday February 1st starting at 6pm where we’ll have swag giveaways, discounted pints and mugs of the winning beer, as well as the full unveiling of all of the contenders and their respective tap lines. Come support local beer!
