GRUFF Brewing Co., The North Fork Brewery, Skagit Valley Malting, NW Hop Farms, & Mt. Baker Ski Area

Tips Up IPA

TIPS UP IPA was brewed to raise money for @nwacus. Brewed with locally sourced Spruce tips, our pals at @northwesthopfarms donated hops infused with even more spruce tips to make this beer super tastey. Then @skagitvalleymalting donated all the specialty malt for this creation so we could try and raise as much money as possible. This 7.6% beer is something special you don’t want to miss.

Illuminati Brewing Company

Triple Moon Belgian Tripel & New World Porter on Nitro

Illuminati has been cranking out some awesome beers since their major rebirth this winter. The porter is robust and smooth at 6.9% ABV, and the Tripel is one of Dave Meadow’s specialties at 7.8% ABV. Go check them out!

Structures Brewing

Unexplored Map

Pale Ale brewed with buckwheat, and oats, dry hopped with Chinook and Cascade.

Notes of pineapple and mango, dry clean bitterness in the finish.

Wander Brewing

In Season Grapefruit IPA

Fermented with pure juice and on 50 pounds of macerated grapefruit flesh, then cold-conditioned on 5 pounds of zest. Finished with a substantial Simcoe and Amarillo dryhop addition. So much juicy in each sip.
