UPDATED: Fat Head's Brewery & Saloon will hold its third annual IPA Festival on Saturday (Oct. 8). The event will feature about 30 India pale ales, with 75 percent of them coming from local breweries. (Click here to see the entire list provided by Fat Head's.) "I'm really excited about that," co-owner and brewer Matt Cole said about the local response. "There are going to be some really good beers there." In addition to the tasting, awards will be given for best IPA and best double IPA. "We are slowly building this thing up to make it an annual event that I hope these guys continue to compete for local bragging rights," Cole said. One brewery not represented in the competition? Fat Head's. Cole, whose Head Hunter IPA has won two medals at the last two Great American Beer Festivals, said he doesn't feel it's right to enter his own competition. It wouldn't look good if he won, he said chuckling. Even though Fat Head's won't compete for any awards, its IPAs will be available for festival-goers to sample. There are two tasting sessions: 1 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. The cost is $30 in advance (or $35 at the door) and that gets you 15 drink tickets.
