LoungeSix to Host Best of the West IPA Fest | Local Hops Go Head to Head in a West Coast Beer Challenge on May 5th

April 27, 2013

Beer lovers unite this Cinco de Mayo! The time is approaching when IPA aficionados come together to toast one of craft beer’s most iconic styles. If you think you’ve got what it takes to judge heavy hop varietals, join LOUNGEsix on May 5th for Best of the West IPA Fest. The IPA challenge calls for local breweries to compete for the coveted titles of Critics’ Choice Award and People’s Choice Award. Vote on your favorite brewery, mingle with brew masters, and snack on pint-sized sandwiches as you sample some of Southern California’s finest ales. Pure hoppiness for only $20!

The breweries partaking in the contest may speak to different palates, but each brings something signature to the tasting table, whether it’s a citrus nose or malty character. How you like your beer is up to you, just remember to vote for your favorite.

For $20, you’ll get pours from all breweries, including Green Flash, Port Brewing, Stone Brewing, Manzanita, Lightning Brewery, Ballast Point and more. When you’re not busy sipping or swapping notes with the brewers, Jsix’s pint-sized sandwiches will be served throughout the event to prevent beer bloat.

The Best of the West IPA Challenge will take place May 5th, from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at LOUNGEsix, the rooftop terrace on the fourth floor of Hotel Solamar on 616 J Street in Downtown San Diego
