Introducing the 3rd Nottingham CAMRA IPA Hop Monday 1st August to Wednesday 31st August
With the success of both the Mild Trail and Stout & Porter Stroll in promoting different styles of beer throughout the year, we decided to launch our very first Nottingham CAMRA IPA Trail in 2014.
Nottingham CAMRA’s first IPA Trail was organised by some of the branch’s Young Members with assistance of other members of the committee in the first year - and with 34 pubs taking part from 23rd to 31st August, it was more successful than we imagined! It ran for just one week and was so successful that we are putting on the event every year and rebranding it as the IPA Hop for one month.
The 2015 IPA Hop ran from Friday 7th August to Monday 31st August and had 42 participating pubs.
There was a minimum restriction of 5.5% ABV as a ‘tip of the hat’ not only to the original style IPAs which had to make the trip across the ocean to India, but to traditional British brewing as a whole, which was once upon a time much stronger than the typical session ales we see today.
