Boundary Bay Brewery

BLIPA Flight #320

BLI✈️PA Flight #320 celebrates Boundary’s Captain and Owner, Ed Bennett, who was born on March 20th (3/20) and started the brewery trademarked as Bellingham’s first! The BLI✈️PA series is a departure from our bold, trailblazing Northwest-style IPAs into a maverick-style of tropical bliss.

6.5% ABV

April Brews Day Pale

This beautiful golden pale ale is brewed to celebrate @maxhigbeecenter’s @aprilbrewsday! ABD Paleʼs dense, persistent head combines with tropical/citrus aromas to excite the tastebuds. Dry-hopped with Citra® hops will surely keep the PNW hop lovers happy.

5.1% ABV

Herb’s Cider

Heirloom Blueberry Cider

Herb’s is releasing a blueberry heirloom cider in honor of their Earth Day event. This events the NW Straits Foundation. Check out Herb’s Instagram for details.

Kulshan Brewing Co.

Strawberry Rhubarb Apero

This unusual beer is thirst quenching and delightfully refreshing. Sweet strawberry notes are apparent up front, followed by the balancing tartness of rhubarb. Extremely dry and clean, this beer has become an immediate staff favorite.

Cherry Gose

Its beautiful Rosé-like color immediately ignites the imagination, whisking you away to summer adventures to come and fun to be had. Kulshan’s [Our] GABF medal winning gose is the base for this beer, and it shines through with light bready notes, as well as citrus and coriander accents. Sweet pie cherries are of course the star of this beer, and they shine through in the aroma and on the tongue, melding beautifully with the tartness of the gose to create an irresistibly refreshing brew.

Wander Brewing

Mosey Pale Ale

Mosey Pale, a good, old fashioned hop standoff between Simcoe and Mosaic. Medium bodied and ready for spring with bright citrus-driven floral aromatics. Mosey on up to the bar and say something like, “this taproom ain’t big enough for the two of us” and gesture at your dog.
