Do you have a favorite IPA that comes from California? Chances are it may be a beer from Stone, Port, Alpine, Coronado, Green Flash, Alesmith, or Ballast Point. California seems to be running the shows as far as IPA’s go. Being born and raised in the beautiful state of Washington, I have had the chance to experience many great local breweries with some great IPA’s such as our Diamond Knot IPA kit from…you guessed it, The Diamond Knot Brewery, as well as many other breweries around Washington.
However, when walking through a specialty beer shop in the IPA section, California seems to be the dominant producer of great IPA’s.
