For the third straight year I missed the Bistro IPA Festival, even with them moving it from its usual August date to today. Happily, owner Vic Kralj was again kind enough to send me the list of the winners. Carlsbad Raceway IPA, from Pizza Port in Carlsbad, near San Diego, was chosen best in show at the 16th annual IPA Festival today at the Bistro in Hayward, California. The full list of winners is below.
- 1st Place: Carlsbad Raceway IPA (Pizza Port Carlsbad)
- 2nd Place: The Pupil (Societe Brewing)
- 3rd Place: Knee Deep Citra Extra Pale Ale (Knee Deep Brewing)
- People’s Choice: Aroma Coma (Drake’s Brewing) [2nd year in a row]
