Today, hop heads around the world unite for IPA Day. (It’s also National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, but we digress to what we know best.)

To celebrate, we teamed up with the mixologists at 8407 Kitchen Bar in Silver Spring, MD and asked them to share two of their favorite beer cocktails using IPAs from yours truly. 

First up is the Rum Diary:

  • 1 oz. El Dorado rum
  • 1 oz. pineapple and mango shrub (house made)
  • Shake the above ingredients and strain into a chilled martini glass
  • Then, top with 2 oz. Single Hop Imperial IPA with El Dorado

8407’s mixologists explained that IPAs were an obvious choice for beer cocktails because of their complexity. Their approach is to compliment the beer, not mask it. So they concentrate on the flavors within the bitterness, like fruitiness or resinous, and emphasize those flavors with complimentary liquors. 

The Hell’s Angel, which includes a house made Habanero syrup with Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA, raised the beer cocktail bar to a mind-blowing new level:

  • 1 oz. Bulleit bourbon
  • 1/2 oz. Pimento dram 
  • 1/2 oz. Raging Bitch Habanero syrup (house made) 
  • 3/4 oz. lime juice
  • Shake the above ingredients and strain into a tall glass with ice 
  • Then, top with ginger ale

Each summer, we have an employee crab feed here at the brewery.

Jealous? You should be. We have more crabs, shrimp, hush puppies, and sweet corn to feed an army, along with the 15+ beers in our taproom. And once the sun goes down, one can only imagine the insanity that ensues. 

This epic picking and drinking frenzy is today. So while we’re inducing all of this jealousy, we figured we’d share our favorite beers to pair with Maryland Blue Crabs:

UnderDog Atlantic Lager

The newest member of our pack, this crisp, clean, and refreshing lager has bold hop character. And at merely 4.7% ABV, it’s a perfect pounder while picking for 6 hours straight. 

In-Heat Wheat Hefeweizen

The clove aroma and flavor, from the yeast strain used in this traditional German-style Hefeweizen, compliments Old Bay seasoning perfectly. 

Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale

The grassy hop notes in our Classic Pale Ale enhance the spice sticking to your fingers, while the malty sweet balance prolongs the sweet meat flavor on your palate. 

Old Scratch Amber Lager 

For those who weren’t born with Old Bay in their veins (aka, can’t take the spice) the caramel malty sweetness of Old Scratch soothes the heat and makes the richly sweet meat even sweeter.
