Melvin Brewing’s 2020 National 2×4 Day Events

Melvin Brewing is celebrating its 5th annual National 2×4 Day on Saturday, February 8th 2020 at participating locations nationwide. Founded to celebrate the Wyoming brewery’s best-selling, triple crown winning Double IPA, 2×4 Day is a kung-fu, hip hop, party dropping hop bomb at a location near you.

Melvin’s 2×4 Double IPA’s main claim to fame is the medals it’s won at the Great American Beer Festival, World Beer Cup and Alpha King competition. It’s the beer that put Melvin on the map from its days as a nano brewery behind a Thai restaurant under its original title, Thai Me Up Brewing.

More from a press release:

We like to party, you like to party, but now National 2×4 Day has a greater cause: We must unite to fight against WorldBev. This event is unlike any other and we want you to join us near and far across the US of A. Bring the ruckus, party hard, drink 2×4 and unite with your fellow hop freaks against WorldBev.
WHAT TO EXPECT: This is the day you embrace you’re inner ninja, drink 2×4 and wear that old karate uniform that has been collecting dust in your closet. This is the day you let go of your adulthood and embody the kung-fu master within. There will be loads of Melvin Brewing freebies to win (or loose), hip hop beats to sing to and 2x4s to chop with your bare hands. Maybe there will be a fire-breathing dragon or maybe a unicycling karate kid.
SHOW US WHAT YOU’VE GOT. Do you want to get noticed? Post a video in your best Melvin ninja wear and get creative. Do you build human pyramids with your friends in your spare time? Do you have a secret ninja move and 2×4 chug you’ve been waiting to reveal on social media? Hashtag #2x4day, wear your Melvin gear and make sure to get that can of 2×4 in the shot for your chance to get noticed.
