-New Pints-

Aslan Brewing Co.

Marzen Rauchbier

Modeled after the famous lager of Brauerie Spezial in Bamberg, Germany. This rendition wouldn’t be possible if not for @skagitvalleymalting. Sourcing organic ingredients is hard, but finding an obscure smoked malt in organic form proved impossible. So Skagit Valley stepped in and made Aslan a custom beechwood smoked malt that is certified organic. The smoke aroma is evident, like smoked bacon or even campfire, but delicate on the tongue, and provides waves of complexity without being overpowering. Decoction mashed and lagered for 6 weeks for a clean authentic Rauchbier. Aside from the Skagit Valley malt, all of the ingredients where sourced from the Deutschland.

4.8% ABV

Boundary Bay Brewery

Purple Reign Citraweisse

Boundary infused their refreshing citraweisse with black currant in celebration of the UW Huskies going to the Rose Bowl. Get it before it’s gone!

GRUFF Brewing

Rose All Day Brut IPA

Brewed with an assortment of @skagitvalleymalting, pinot noir grapes and then double dry hopped with Azacca and Amerillo hops. Cheers to 2019!
