-New Beers-

Aslan Brewing Co.

Double Doug Double IPA

Brewed in the classic late 90’s West Coast double IPA style with the addition of Douglas Fir branches. This beer is resinous, piney, and fruity with a strong, assertive bitterness. Brewed with Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Columbus, and dry hopped with more Simcoe and Amarillo. A classic representation of an OG style with an intriguing piney finish.

8.8% ABV

Wee Heavy

Annually the Bellingham Homebrewers Guild awards the home brewer of the year, and every year we reward that person by brewing a recipe of their choice. This year Darin Hamm was the winner and this is his original recipe! Malty and strong, this traditional Scotch Ale carries flavors of caramel and ripe wild strawberries.

8.2% ABV

Boundary Bay Brewery

Pleasant Bay IPA

Boundary Bay’s Pleasant Bay IPA takes an expedition into a luscious indulgence of tropical aromas, tantalizingly juicy citrus and pineapple flavors. Utilizing the late-addition of exotic, high alpha-acid hops, Pleasant Bay IPA’s presentation of fruity bitterness creates a lasting impression.

Abrikozen Sour

9.7°P OG | 10 IBU | 4.3% ABV

Ripe and succulent, Abrikozen is a kettle-soured beer brewed with 100% local malt from Skagit Valley. Tart complexity bursts from this fragrant, hazy sour as a result of the copious addition of apricot, passionfruit and Pineapple purees. Abrikozen tantalizes senses with its delicate funkiness, sunshine complexion and dry finish.

Stones Throw Brewery

Crimson King Red Ale

Cascade, Chinook and EKG hops make for this malty and smooth red ale. A subtle smokiness pairs well with chocolate and cherry notes.

Interesting enough to tell your friends? Do it!
