On the first Thursday in August, the beer known as India Pale Ale is celebrated as National IPA Day. It falls on August 4 this year. To spread knowledge of one of the world's most well-known varieties of craft beer, the India Pale Ale, or IPA, National IPA Day is honored.
What is an IPA?
With hops and pale malts, the IPA is a robust, assertive, and bitter beer. It is made with several different hop strains and has a higher alcohol content than ordinary beer. I.P.A. Day brings together extensive and small breweries, craft beer fans, and connoisseurs through several IPA tasting events, festivals, and other activities.
Origin of National IPA Day
This holiday was created in 2011 by beer enthusiast and author Ashley Rousten of "The Beer Wench's Guide to Beer: An Unpretentious Guide to Craft Beer." I.P.As may have been brewed in England before being delivered to India, but the term was given by British seamen who visited India in the late 1700s as members of the East India Company.
The fact that it was challenging to make beer in India due to the country's hot heat was one of the reasons sailors took them on their expedition. Since hops are a natural preservative, the pale ales from England to India had a larger hop content, which helped preserve their flavor. It wasn't the only beer that could be shipped at the time; porters were also sent to California and India. George Hodgson's Bow Brewery produced one of the first IPAs that were exported to India. The brewery's proximity to the East India Docks was beneficial to traders. Brewers in Burton, England, soon started producing beer for sale to India after losing their Russian customers.IPAs were in considerable demand in England by 1840, and by 1860, the beer was being brewed worldwide. The British Empire rapidly caught on to the craze. Even though their recipes remained the same, some brewers in England started referring to them as pale ales rather than India Pale Ales. Breweries in the United States, Canada, and Australia produced IPAs that were comparable to those produced in England before 1900. IPAs, on the other hand, started to become less popular in the early 1900s.
What’s the difference between a pale ale and an IPA?
Both pale ales and IPAs are similar in color and fermenting process, but IPAs have hoppier taste profiles with higher alcohol content. As craft beers have grown in popularity, craft brewers have pushed the boundaries of nearly every style of beer. Innovative brewing processes and experimentation with recipes have blurred the distinctions between the two types of beer.
