Tonight: IPA Takeover at London Grill
Today London Grill is being taken over by IPAs, and some great IPAs at that. Included among the IPAs are Firestone Walker Imperial IPA, Moylan’s Hopsicle, Founder’s Red Rye. All ten were tapped at lunch time and are available by the glass, the flight and by growlers too!
