-New Beers-

Atwood Ales

Concurrent #1 Barrel-Aged Brown Ale with Black Currant

This garnet-colored ale was aged for 5 months in oak barrels and then for an additional 3 months with black currants. Layers of dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, and fruit preserves ride tandem with mild acidity, tannins and a moderate dose of cattle barn funk. 

GRUFF Brewing Co

Glass Beach Pale

This hazy balanced pale ale is made with Idaho 7 and Mosaic hops. Plus it has a good portion of Ekuanot hop hash as well as malt from Skagit Valley Malting as always. This pale is 6.3% ABV.

Kulshan Brewing Co.

Coffee Milk Stout

This rich and creamy stout is a collaboration with Fidalgo Coffee Roasters. It has flavors of coffee and dark chocolate and light notes of roast.

Hopfenwiesse

Hopfen, meaning “hop” in German, and Weisse, a traditional German wheat beer style, combine to make an all-star brew: HopfenWeisse! This dreamy style fusion is the creation of Tom Speca, winner of the Bellingham Homebrewers Guild’s annual competition, Best of the Bay. Pairing the wonderful esters, silky body and orange glow of a traditional wheat beer with tropical hop flavors and aromatics of boutique hops, this brew is a blast of flavor unlike anything else!

Illuminati Brewing Company

Brew World Order German Pilsner

 Rich Pilsner malt flavor, firm white and persistent lacy head, mild bitterness, and a crisp noble hop aroma. This may be Illuminati’s best beer yet!

Menace Brewing

Dark Haggen Porter

This new porter is named after Menace’s Merdian St. neighbor, and like it’s name is dark yet….approachable.

Wander Brewing

Irish It Were Redder

Irish Ale, Patagonian Crystal, and a touch of English Roasted malts get the groove going along with Styrian Goldings and the most exotic hop of them all, Fuggle.
