To celebrate the 1st Annual International IPA Day, we are going to throw a proper party. The event will be held at O’Reillys Taproom and Kitchen in Best Western Premier the Central Hotel & Conference Center on Thursday August the 4th.
The schedule is as follows:
Starting at 5:00, there will be a growler and bottle share in the banquet room, next to the Pub (parallel to the bathrooms). Please bring a growler or a bottle of your choice to share with all of the attendees. Please note that it does not have to be an IPA, but IPAs are recommended due to the reason of celebration.
At 8:00, we move the festivities into O’Reillys itself, where there will be at least 6 IPAs on tap and one firkin on the bar. Ffej and ADG of “Think Tank” will be in the house that evening playing live music.
As for food, it will be available to purchase in the pub, and it can be brought in to the banquet room. Outside food will not be permitted in the banquet room. However, it is most important to note that this room is being provided to us free of charge to rent as long as we do not leave a mess behind, so please clean up after yourselves.
NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINKS ARE PERMITTED INSIDE OF THE PUB. This is not just a pub rule, but a state law, especially with alcohol.
Jeff Kupko has started a Google spreadsheet so that everyone can list what they plan to bring for the growler/bottle share here:
