Wyoming’s Melvin Brewing is once again celebrating their award-winning 2×4 IPA across the U.S. and in three countries on Saturday, February 4th with special events at 30 plus participating bars from Boston and Washington, DC to San Francisco, Seattle and beyond. The swag, the hip-hop, the ninjas, and – of course – Melvin’s 2×4 will all be out to party.
Plus…this year Hacksaw Jim Duggan is Melvin’s 2×4 Day spokesperson. Hacksaw Jim isn’t the only one who carries a 2×4—check out the bars laying the lumber this year.
2×4 is an Imperial IPA with an absurd amount of hops, 10 percent ABV and a light malt base that reveals notes of pine, citrus and tropical fruit. 2×4 won a gold medal at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival, back-to-back Alpha King awards in 2012 and 2013 (placed 2nd in 2015), and a gold medal at the 2014 World Beer Cup.
In addition to 2×4, Melvin will introduce its four RIIPA Series beers (Rotational Imperial IPAs). These beers will be available in draft and cans and will rotate through various territories throughout the next four quarters with no two beers ever being served within the same state at the same time.

* Imperial IPA
2×4’s award winning cousin. The * Imperial IPA uses copious amounts of mosaic hops that give this beer strong notes of tropical fruit, stone fruit, mango and berries. Brewed with a blend of northwest 2-row, light crystal, mosaic hops and some stuff you don’t even know about.
Drunken Master Imperial IPA
Born out of the Melvin R&D facility on Wyoming’s West Coast, also known as the closet. Brewed with a blend of Columbus, Citra and some Top-Secret hops left over from the great east vs. west hip hop battles. Hopped with over 3 pounds per barrel. Drunken Master is the 2016 National IIPA Champion. Sure to make you a Drunken Master if you consume too many of these bad boys. Cheers from the crew at Melvin. Please, only practice your Karate after a four pack and bow to your sensei.
Citradamus Imperial IPA
The great Citradamus predicts this IIPA will be one of your favorites. Citradamus is Melvin’s world class IIPA brewed with 100% Citra hops, pristine mountain water and northwest malt. Flavors of citrus (duh), pine and total dankness. Dry hopped with ludicrous amounts of Citra for that classic hoppiness that Melvin has become known for.
Lambda Triple IPA
The crew at Melvin decided to push their system to the max on all levels. Brewed with 4 plus lbs of Simcoe and Mosaic hops per barrel then double dry hopped. Flavors of peach, stone fruit and herbal forest. Sure to put you in the gravel pit.
OG: ABV: 11-13%
