Aslan Brewing Co. & Crosby Hops

Captain Planet IPA

Equal parts malted and unmalted wheat made 50% of the malt profile, while organic barley made the other half. Massively hopped with Chinook and Bravo hop hash, then double dry hopped with El Dorado. This IPA is very reminiscent in mouthfeel and flavor of Minute Maid OJ.

7.3% ABV

Boundary Bay Brewery & Lost Giants Cider Co

The Graf

This cider beer, known as a Graf, is a combination of apple, malt and hops! The Graf was brewed in collaboration with Bellingham’s newest cidery, Lost Giants Cider Company! This lighter-bodied and hazy beer is a refreshing rush of semi-sweet apple and malt characteristics. With low bitterness, The Graf is perfect for a taste or a pint. Made with Citra and Calypso hops, Pink Lady and Dessert Blend Apples, and Pilsner and Vienna malts.

5% ABV, 28 IBU

Boundary Bay Brewery and Brothers Cascadia

Three Degree Haze IPA

Calibrating this Hazy IPA took a latitude adjustment of only three degrees to accomplish! Brothers Cascadia Brewing (Vancouver, Washington) navigated the I-5 corridor to collaborate on this Hazy IPA. Three Degree Haze combines a zealous deep-orange haziness with a tropical, juicy essence for a brand new experience.

6% ABV, 35 IBU

GRUFF Brewing Co.

N.E. Blood Orange IPA

Made with flaked oats, wheat and grain from Skagit Valley Malting, GRUFF’s second Bellingham Beer Week special release is filled to the brim with blood oranges. An eclectic variety of hops were added to this brew, like Idaho 7, Zythos and Ekuanot hop hash. Come get it before it’s gone!

6.8% ABV

Kulshan Brewing Co.

Heliotrope IPA

This is a fruit forward IPA, with a focus on citrus and tropic fruits. You’ll notice a little berry with a pleasant pine finish that leaves a dry linger for more. Come check out the newest addition to Kulshan’s stellar IPA lineup at the K2 location.

Menace Brewing

Hefeweizen

It’s getting warmer every day! There’s one kind of beer we wait all year for and Menace has brought it right in time for the sunshine. This hazy Hef goes perfectly with an orange slice, of course. Make sure to go enjoy the worlds best combo, Hef’s, sunshine and beer gardens.

Pragmatic Pale and Saaz All

Just in time for Beer Week, Menace released another two brews. This brand new pale is now available on draft as well as the Saaz All, a Czech style lager.

Stones Throw Brewery & Kulshan Brewing Co. with Pink Boot Society

These Boots Are Made For Hopping Oatmeal Pale

Smooth, biscuity and peachy, this pale ale was made entirely by the ladies of the Bellingham beer community. You can find it all over town but it’s gonna go quick so hurry!

5.5% ABV, 33 IBU

Citra Down, Bottoms Up!

This IPA was specially crafted for Bellingham Beer Week. Dry-hopped with Citra and Cascade hops, this limited release IPA has notes of melon and mango to balance out the strawberry aroma. Caramel notes come from the Triticale malt from Skagit Valley Malting.

  1. Sad news for Melvin in WY – apparently they are begging the state of WY (one of there large funders) for some type of bailout.
