-New Pints-

GRUFF Brewing Co.

(in collaboration with North Corner Brewing Supply)

6% ACID Saison

Robert and Chris used German wheat and pilsner malt plus a healthy acidulated malt to make this mighty fine saison!

Illuminati Brewing Company

Who’s Vernon? IPA

Who’s Vernon? is a well balanced IPA that throws huge dank fruit notes from a mix of Amarillo and Mandarina Bavaria. A smooth bitterness is rounded out with a full mouthful thanks to some oats and wheat.

6.6% ABV

Saison Sehome

The Saison Sehome brings you a crisp, classic flavor with a Bellingham twist using Skagit Valley malt and Loral hops from Yakima Valley. It features a bright pear, and subtle spice, with a quenching effervescent finish.

6.7% ABV

Kulshan Brewing Co.

Bingo Bango Imperial IPA

Big and bold, it offers just enough bready malt tones and slight sweetness to balance out the warming alcohol and enormous hop character that lies within. This beer is of course all about the hops, and it delivers big with zesty notes of tangerine, grapefruit, and pine needles, followed up by subtler notes of black tea and cantaloupe.

Sahale IPA

Malted Oats and unmalted wheat give this beer a soft and smooth malt presence, as well as mild toasty bread notes. The real star in this show is obviously the hops, and they don’t disappoint. Big notes of lime, peach, and strawberry jump out of the glass, followed by slighter citrus notes of grapefruit and tangerine.

German-Style Maibock

A deeply satisfying beer, Maibock has beautiful bready and toasty malt notes and a warming alcohol presence. Delicate floral hop character and a mild sweetness blend delightfully, creating an exquisitely balanced beer that finishes clean and dry.

Wander Brewing

(in collaboration with Field House Brewing)

Nelson Sauvignon Blanc

Nelson Sauvignon Blanc is a hybrid mash-up of a fermentation. We created an extra pale base beer using Patagonian grown malt which was then allowed to ferment freely with our house ale strain in our oak open top foeder. We then blended the base beer with sauvignon blanc grape juice, dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin, and allowed the beer to undergo a secondary fermentation. The resulting brew is ultra-dry, grape forward, and uniquely wine-like. Look for the Field House oak-aged wild version of the collaboration in the coming months.

Wander Litely American Lager

Comprised of American 6-row, corn, and flaked barley, Wander Litely is light and dry with a slight graininess balanced by a whisper of Yakima grown hops. Best served refreshingly cold straight from the can, so crack open a cold one and let your mind drift back to simpler times when your very first beer was your favorite beer.
