October was, as usual, a big, hoppy, IPA-filled month for Beveridge Place Pub. For those not in the know, each October Beveridge Place holds their annual ‘Hoptopberfest’. This month-long Washington IPA competition, decided by your votes, is how Beveridge Place selects their ‘House IPA’ for the next year.
Now, with Hoptoberfest voting nearly complete, Beveridge Place turns their attention to their last seriously hop-filled event of the season: the 10th Annual IPA Cask-O-Rama. This event is heaven for those who love Cask IPAs. Beveridge Place will cover the bartop with at least 23 cask IPA from Washington breweries for you to enjoy.
According to Beveridge Place Pub:
Our tenth annual IPA Cask-O-Rama is shaping up to be the best yet! Join us as we serve 23 Washington IPA’s in all their cask-conditioned Glory.
We will announce the winner of the 2015 Hoptoberfest Election, a month long hop heavy party where we let YOU determine which IPA will be on tap for all of 2016!
Here is the lineup of breweries so far for this year’s event:
- Bale Breaker
- Big Al
- Big Time
- Black Raven
- Boundary Bay
- Hales Ales
- Lazy Boy
- Machine House
- Naked City
- North Sound
- Rainy Daze
- Reuben’s Brews
- Schooner Exact
- Two Beers
As noted above, Cask-O-Rama is also where Beveridge Place will announce their winner for this year’s Hoptoberfest, and their House IPA for the next year. The three finalists are: Schooner Exact Brewing Company (Hopvine IPA), Bale Breaker Brewing Company (Top Cutter IPA) and Georgetown Brewing Company (Bodhizafa IPA). You’ve still got time to cast your vote, but not much so don’t delay. Also, remember, you must order a blind taster tray of the 3 finalists in order to cast your vote. This ensures that you’re voting with your taste buds, and not what you think is your favorite based on the name/brewery.
Cask-O-Rama gets under way at about 7 PM. Expect a big crowd of Cask IPA lovers, as well as staff from the finalists, eager to hear who won Hoptoberfest. I’ll see you there.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
