I'm participating in the made-up twitter holiday. I'm quite certain that the only thing worse than a made-up hallmark holiday is a made-up twitter holiday, but I don't care.
I figure, what the heck. I'm a blogger. I'm a beer geek. I like to drink the IPA style of beer. I should add to the madness.
What is #IPAday? Well, I'm not sure I quite "get it", but then I don't "get" twitter either, and that doesn't stop me from tweeting. I'll simply send you to Craft Beer website where you can read about it yourself. See IPA Day Is Back: August 1, 2013. If you "get it" try to explain it to me in the comments below.

Like last year, I have actually scheduled blog posts to publish throughout the day. Don't judge me. At least I'm not doing this at work. You can see all I have written or will write about #IPADay at: http://blog.ericshepard.com/search/label/%23IPADay
Hurray for IPA! Go out and drink one for me. I'll be sure to drink one or more for you.
IPA started as a day to take BMC drinkers and force them to drink an IPA and make them love it and become a craft drinker. If this would have been my intro, I would not be drinking beer today. They tell you to celebrate it but it has nothing to do with us true believers!ReplyDelete
Well, I don't think the Beer Wench's idea behind #IPAday was ever to convert anyone, and was never to force anyone to do anything.ReplyDelete
Like I said, I don't understand it completely, but I do use it as an excuse to blog about and drink IPA's.
In 2011 that was her definition... let me see if I can find the original article... I'll tweet it to you.Delete
LOL .... I got your tweet ... I still don't see the word "force". To me it is more about education and global awareness rather than conversion.ReplyDelete
I do see your point, though, and as I said, the "only thing worse than a made-up hallmark holiday is a made-up twitter holiday"
(of course it has not stopped me from contributing to the madness ... I probably need physiological help).
I'm just as crazy if so. Just look at my untappd badge and check-in count...Delete
