Great Basin Brewing Company Brews Up IPApril

RENO, Nev. (April. 2, 2014) – Great Basin Brewing Company has long had a deep connection with India Pale Ales. Over 20 years ago, when Great Basin first opened its doors in 1993, the “Brewmaster’s Special” was Ichthyosaur IPA, and remains their most popular brew. Today, India Pale Ales, or IPAs, are widely considered to be a signature style of American craft brewing.

Great Basin is paying homage to this brash, bold and bitter beer style with IPApril, a month-long celebration of the IPA. April 1st Great Basin began pouring flights and pints of 6 unique IPAs with an additional 3 guest beers from breweries around Nevada. They will also be offering paired food specials to complement the hoppy brews.

“As a craft brewer, it’s exciting to be able to showcase such a wide variety of flavor and aroma over a flight of IPAs,” owner and brewmaster Tom Young said. “We hope our fans love drinking them as much as we loved brewing them.”

IPApril kicks off with Black Eye PA, Deathwish APA, Hop Head, ICKY IPA, Red Eye PA and White Eye PA. On April 9th, Tectonic Event IPA and Wicked ICKY join the lineup. Flights of IPAs will start at $9 for six 4-ounce pours.
