  • Aslan set something of a record with their latest creation for Bellingham Beer Week.

A cool piece of Bellingham beer history! Beer to be released next week.

Chilling in the beer garden, relaxing on the beach, hiking and biking in the mountains, floating the river and enjoying craft beer; whatever your bliss, Summer Vibes is a pure taste of Bellingham’s immaculate summers.
