With the arrival of St. Patrick’s Day, it also means the arrival of another celebration at Motor Craft Ales: Aye.-P.A. Week!
Every year, Motor Craft Ales showcases a bevy of I.P.A. brews in a jubilee of sorts focusing on this well-known style of beer. Why do they call it “Aye.P.A.”? Well, because the Irish say “aye” a lot and it’s launched on St. Patrick’s Day, of course!
The nano brewery is launching 6 custom built I.P.A.’s just for the week of March 17-25, 2018. They’re limited batches so be sure to get there while they last.
Here’s a look at the 6 creations that will be available just for Aye. P.A. Week:
