-Pint Points-

  • Wander is keeping the collaborations coming and announced they are doing a beer with Steel and Oak Brewing Co. out of New Westminster, B.C. and Chuckanut Brewery. We’re all looking forward to the first weissbeer of the year.
  • Melvin Brewing is officially offering $5 off your order when you bring in a Mt. Baker lift ticket or season pass on Sundays– a perfect excuse for a post-shred brew.
  • If you’re at the Smash Life snowboard race at Alpental this weekend, you’ll get the chance to try the only available Smash Life IPA from Aslan. 100% of the proceeds from this beer go towards The A-Rob Plant a Seed Project, helping kids in need enjoy the mountains and an outdoor lifestyle. This beer will be available exclusively at this Snoqualmie Pass event.
  • Illuminati will begin hosting a weekly Jazz Jam on Thursdays from 5:30 to 8 pm, hosted by Jud Sherwood and will feature local and regional jazz musicians.

-New Beers-

Aslan Brewing Co.

Stone Cold Pilsner

This brand new pilsner is soft and light and everything good. With accents of key limes and fresh lychee, it’s a refreshing branch out from a traditional pilsner. It is dry hopped with Barbe Rogue and Mistral hops and is 5% ABV.

Gruff Brewing

Gruff Lite American Pilsner

Gruff now makes your traditional party-time beer. This American pilsner is 4% ABV and is everything you want in a good ol’ fashioned pilsner; light with a very high drinkability factor.

Kulshan Brewing

Black Gold Schwarzbier

 Franconian Schwarzbeir is light to the taste. A pleasant malt character supports a surprisingly light and refreshing hop profile, showcasing the spicy and floral distinctiveness of German Tettnang Tettnanger. Balanced hop bitterness slowly fades into a finish of subtle roast and coffee bean.
