-New Pints-

Aslan Brewing Co.

B Proud IPA

Brewed to benefit Bellingham Pride & celebrate PRIDE month nationally, this IPA takes pilsener and wheat malts & combines them with Centennial, Chinook and Cascade to deliver a light, dry, and refreshing take on IPA. The C hops may no longer be sexy to the IPA crowd, but they’re still hits worth remembering. More bitter than most un-clarified IPAs, but that keeps your pallet refreshed. Lemon/lime, with overtones of pine and background notes of pineapple anyone?! Special thanks to Skagit Valley Malting, and Yakima Chief for their generous contributions to this beer.

6.5% ABV

GRUFF Brewing Co.

Space Cadet Lindsey IPA

This N.E style ipa is made with Denali hops and is 8% of pure juicy goodness. May it take your tastebuds to where they have never gone before.

Kulshan Brewing Co.

Mango Strawberry Apero

This unusual brut beer is thirst quenching and delightfully refreshing. Sweet strawberry notes are apparent up front, followed by juicy mango accents. Extremely dry and clean, this style is still a staff favorite.

Menace Brewing

Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes IPA

Made with Citra, Simcoe and Azacca! Slight haze and mild, grassy bitterness. Come partake in a little mischief, maybe get a little spooked!

6.5% ABV

Stones Throw Brewery & The North Fork Brewery

Six on Six

Well-rounded with a golden-light body, this pale was brewed with six hop varieties and six malt varieties. A smooth floral aroma in the melon and tangerine flavors pairs well with the malty sweetness. An ode to Mt. Baker’s Chair 6!

6% ABV

Structures Brewing

Brainwave

Oat Pale Ale hopped with a rad blend of African Queen, El Dorado, and Simcoe. Big notes of lemon and berry in this one.

Twin Sisters Brewing Company

Mango Lager

The original lager got a tropical twist!

4.7% ABV

OG Dark Lager

The Original Lager was out enjoying the sun and it got a tan . ⁣

4.7% ABV

Wander Brewing

Splendid Sunlight IPA

This burst of brightness is all West Coast. Additions of unmistakable classic Yakima Valley hops create a firm bitterness and bouquet backed by a malt bill decorated with full rich malted red winter wheat.
