Thompson Island makes Beer Travel Guide’s Best IPAs of 2020

February 11, 2021

Thompson Island Brewing Company’s flagship IPA was included in Beer Travel Guide’s Best IPAs of 2020 list.

“It is an honor to have one of our beers recognized on a list including brewing icons like Russian River and Bissel Brothers,” said Matt Patton, director of operations for SoDel Concepts, which owns Thompson Island Brewing Company and 11 other coastal Delaware restaurants.

“Even though our IPA is the best-selling beer at the restaurant, it rarely receives the accolades of our more limited releases,” said Patton, who oversees the hospitality company’s beer program. “This is certainly an achievement for our brewing team.”

This announcement comes two months after the Thompson Island IPA won a gold medal for best IPA in the world from the U.S. Open Beer Championship.
