Ben’s Bottle Shop Distributor’s Cup Blind IPA Contest

A few weeks ago we asked the six major beer wholesalers in Vancouver, Washington to send me their BEST single IPA. We put them on tap anonymously and let our customers vote on their favorite. After some fierce competition and friendly banter, we have a winner! Congrats to Breakside Brewing, their IPA (Breakside IPA) has won the first annual Ben’s Bottle Shop Distributor’s Cup! Silver Moon IPA 97 took second and Ex Novo Eliot IPA took third. Here is the list of the six excellent IPAs in the contest and where they were on the draft list!

Tap 1 Vertigo Uno Mas
Tap 2 Breakside IPA
Tap 3 Silver Moon IPA 97
Tap 4 Fat Heads IBUSIVE 
Tap 5 54-40 Broken Record IPA
Tap 6 Ex Novo Eliot IPA

A special thanks to all of the brewers, wholesalers and customers who participated all week!

The first annual Ben’s Beer Week has been a tremendous amount of fun and it is not over! Tomorrow, we will host the bottle release of 54-40’s “54-40 or Fight CDA” from 12-3 then welcome Silver Moon Brewing into our shop for an event that includes their acclaimed Maui Wowie Double IPA on draft!
