National IPA Day 2021: New beer releases, specials & local brewery guide

Hoppy Holidays from local breweries

Some people hate them because they’re too bitter, others think that there are too many of them on the menu, and then there’s another crowd that thinks they’re the bee’s knees. 

These are common things heard when IPAs are spoken of, but not all IPAs taste the same. Luckily, there’s a holiday to shine a light on the sometimes misunderstood beer.

Also, if IPAs really isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other crafty, unique, and one-of-a-kind beers to try at any of the local breweries here in Tucson.

Chill out with the brewery just west of I-10 because they’ve been cooling things off this summer with their beer slushies. Although, there’s a new one to try on National IPA Day —the RV of an Old Man Yelling At A Cloud IPA Slushy.

The name is a mouthful but perhaps it’ll get easier to order after a few slushies in.

1015 S. Park Ave.

Pueblo Vida Brewing Company

115 E. Broadway Blvd.

Brewing beer is a work of art and at Pueblo Vida Brewing, so are the cans. They’ve got a new brew out and it’s called The Continental Triple IPA, which is housed in a can designed by @saywellsdesign.

The beer is made with ripe pineapple and honey crisp apple, but instead of reading about it you should try it for yourself.
