Description

Create TC and 7 Monks Taproom are happy to announce their 2nd Annual Grand Rapids IPA Challenge presented by MI LOCAL HOPS! A special thank you also to Great Lakes Malting for supporting our event.

The IPA challenge is a local competition between TEN Grand Rapids breweries. Each brewery will produce their “Best IPA” and submit it for the event. 200 beer lovers will have the opportunity to purchase tickets, be a judge, and vote for their favorite brew anytime between 5-9pm. All tasting will be blind. At 9:30pm, an awards ceremony will take place. The winning brewery will take home a trophy and the privilege of saying that their brewery has “The Best IPA in Grand Rapids.”

We are very excited for the following breweries to be part of this year's event:
