The IPA remains a dominant force in modern craft beer.

It is both the most popular beer style and the beer scene's biggest talking point. Whether you're hysterical about haze, mad about malt or barmy for bitterness, the IPA is a shape-shifting beast that can take on a number of forms.

With interest in the style higher than ever before, we thought it'd be a good time to look at the amazing journey from its origins to the current day.

So we've teamed up with yeast provider Lallemand for the third year running to bring you a special showcase, featuring a series of new beers.

Four brilliant breweries have created five beers that showcase different points in the evolution of the style.

The journey starts with two heritage IPAs, brewed using 19th century recipes, before fast-forwarding to the West Coast of the USA and the big, bitter IPAs that reignited interest in the style in the 1990s.

We'll then take a look at the controversial New England IPA, which has soared in popularity over the past couple of years, before taking a look at what the future might hold.

Rob Percival from Lallemand will host the evening, providing insight into the techniques involved in each version of the style, as well as the key role played by yeast. Each brewer will then present their beer in turn, giving ticket-holders a chance to taste, discuss and ask questions.

The ticket price includes a third of all four beers created specially for the event. Details of the brewers and beers involved will be released soon.
