Wyoming’s Melvin Brewing is once again celebrating their award-winning 2×4 IPA across the U.S. and in three countries on Saturday, February 4th with special events at 30 plus participating bars from Boston and Washington, DC to San Francisco, Seattle and beyond. The swag, the hip-hop, the ninjas, and – of course – Melvin’s craft beer will all be out to party.
Plus…this year Hacksaw Jim Duggan is Melvin’s 2×4 Day spokesperson. Hacksaw Jim isn’t the only one who carries a 2×4—check out the bars laying the lumber this year.
More on Melvin’s 2×4 Day events here.
2×4 is an Imperial IPA with an absurd amount of hops, 10 percent ABV and a light malt base that reveals notes of pine, citrus and tropical fruit. 2×4 won a gold medal at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival, back-to-back Alpha King awards in 2012 and 2013 (placed 2nd in 2015), and a gold medal at the 2014 World Beer Cup.
In addition to 2×4, Melvin will introduce its four RIIPA Series beers (Rotational Imperial IPAs). These beers will be available in draft and cans and will rotate through various territories throughout the next four quarters with no two beers ever being served within the same state at the same time.
2×4’s award winning cousin. The * Imperial IPA uses copious amounts of mosaic hops that give this beer strong notes of tropical fruit, stone fruit, mango and berries. Brewed with a blend of northwest 2-row, light crystal, mosaic hops and some stuff you don’t even know about.
Born out of the Melvin R&D facility on Wyoming’s West Coast, also known as the closet. Brewed with a blend of Columbus, Citra and some Top-Secret hops left over from the great east vs. west hip hop battles. Hopped with over 3 pounds per barrel. Drunken Master is the 2016 National IlPA Champion. Sure to make you a Drunken Master if you consume too many of these bad boys. Cheers from the crew at Melvin. Please, only practice your Karate after a four pack and bow to your sensei.
The great Citradamus predicts this IIPA will be one of your favorites. Citradamus is Melvin’s world class IIPA brewed with 100% Citra hops, pristine mountain water and northwest malt. Flavors of citrus (duh), pine and total dankness. Dry hopped with ludicrous amounts of Citra for that classic hoppiness that Melvin has become known for.
About Melvin Brewing
Melvin Brewing was founded in 2009 by Jeremy Tofte and Kirk McHale to fulfill their need to drink the biggest, most exciting West-Coast Style IPAs in Jackson, WY. Experimenting on a 30 gallon, then three-barrel brew house system, they developed the Melvin IPA and 2×4 Imperial IPA, which went on to win gold medals at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival, back-to-back Alpha King awards in 2012 and 2013, and a Gold Medal at the World Beer Cup. On the strength of these and other beer brands, Melvin Brewing was awarded the 2015 Small Brew Pub and Small Brew Pub Brewer of the year. Melvin brewing now has more than 40 amazing beer recipes to its name, expanding its portfolio of hoppy beers and other styles, with brands or beer syles such as ChChCh-Cherry Bomb (Fruit Beer), Killer Bees (Honey Ale), Coffee Ruckus (Coffee Imperial Stout), Wu’Wit (Belgian Wit), Hey Zeus! (Mexican Lager). In the fourth quarter of 2015, Melvin Brewing opened its production facility in Alpine, WY, brewing out of a new 30-barrel brew house. Kirk will keep manning the three-barrel system in the back of Jackson, Wyoming’s Thai Me Up Restaurant to keep creating some of the most exciting beers on the market today, while Dave Chichura will take over the larger scale production in Alpine.
