Beer pick of the week: Captain Lawrence Hopsomniac IPA

Two “did you knows”: Did you know this is NY Craft Beer week? (It is!) and Did you know coffee IPAs are a thing now? (They are!) Combining the best of both of these facts: Captain Lawrence of Elmsford NY has made a fabulous coffee IPA called Hopsomniac  – one so good it kept me awake all night cause I couldn’t stop drinking it 🙂
