5th Annual TC Ale Trail IPA Challenge

  • About

    The TC Ale Trail, Michigan Hop Alliance, MI Local Hops, Drink My Brewcast and Create TC are happy to announce the FIFTH Annual IPA Challenge!

    The IPA challenge is a local competition between 10 Traverse City breweries. Each brewery will produce their “Best IPA” and submit it for the event. 200 beer lovers will have the opportunity to get tickets and be a judge and choose their favorite brew. All tasting will be blind. Ticket holders will know the description of the beer, ABV, and other facts, but the brewery will remain confidential. At 9 pm an awards ceremony will take place. The winning brewery will take home a trophy and the privilege of saying their brewery has “The Best IPA in Traverse City”

    Troy Daily, co-founder of the TC Ale Trail™ is excited about the event “The IPA Challenge has become an exciting and friendly competition. It's really great to see the breweries coming together and showcasing their individual styles, bringing their best."
