Spring is just around the corner, in spite of what the dueling groundhogs have to say, and that means it is time to start hunting down a great IPA and hop to it. While this may sound a bit cheesy, it really is important to start thinking Spring, as it helps to get rid of the winter doldrums that tend to linger during the last few months of that gloomy season.
Winter is a notoriously gloomy time for millions of people, which means we need to look towards the brighter moments. To wallow in winter is a dangerous act, both physically and mentally, as it breaks down your emotions in ways that are simply unhealthy. In order to combat this naturally occurring issue, we have to make the active effort to look towards those shining times, such as spring and summer, in order to remind us that winter is only one season and it won’t last forever (unless you’re in Alaska, sorry Alaska, Florida still loves you).
We realize you might not have expected this little bit of important information from a craft beer blog but we care about our community and prefer to raise awareness about important issues like health and wellness, mental health, and peak times for depression and stress. Welcome to the craft beer community, where yes, people actually do care about more than just the brews.
Now that we’ve gotten past the doom and gloom stage (sorry, but we really do care), it’s time to move on to those lovely hoppy brews we’ve all come to enjoy over time. While our resident Portaholic may not want one, we know you do, so here’s our list of great IPA labels for you to enjoy while you start hopping towards those spring months with glee. Below is a list of great IPA brews you really should try if you haven’t already.
Hopping into spring has never been easier with these outstanding craft brews available. Sure, there are plenty of others out there, but these few have really caught our attention and we’re anticipating even greater offerings from each of their respective brewmasters in the coming year. We hope you love these brews as much as we did and we’d love to hear about other hoppy monsters you’ve found and enjoyed!
In the meantime, we’re going to keep on tasting, testing, and reporting, as well as working on reaching the opening of our own brewery, West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault, which is coming up in April. We hope to see you here in Florida later this year and we think it’s the perfect excuse for a vacation! Happy hopping!
