We just got wind (in our sails, get it?) of The Voyage of the IPA, a two-hour harbor cruise on Saturday October 2nd with one of the best brains in craft beer: Brewmaster Garrett Oliver of The Brooklyn Brewery. He and his brewing team will board the 158-foot schooner, the “Clipper City,” for a journey into the history of India Pale Ale, which as Garrett can and will tell you, was a beer style created to survive the long sea trip from England to India. They’ll also be pouring Brooklyn East India Pale Ale, BLAST! and Detonation Ale and will be joined by brewers (and IPAs) from Captain Lawrence, Goose Island and Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. To RSVP (and seriously, why wouldn’t you go?) firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212 619 0907.
