Brewer & Beer Lineup

Each of the 150+ beers from the 40+ breweries in attendance will be an India Pale Ale (plus a few India Pale Lagers for good measure). So long as it's somehow an IPA in concept, it's welcome at this festival dedicated to the wide range of flavors and aromas brewers are coaxing from hops!
