Pint Points

  • Boundary Bay and Atwood Ales join local firefighters in a collaboration beer made to raise money for Operation Warm, giving local elementary school children new coats for the winter. This Saturday, 7/20, you can help contribute by attending their fundraising event at Boundary Bay starting at 6 pm. There is a $10 suggested donation and you get to drink great beer for an even better cause. Don’t miss out.

North Corner Brew Supply and Skagit Valley Malting will be there to answer any questions you may have for your personal brews, and you can look in on local home brewers, as well as one of Aslan’s brewers, brewing in the Aslan Depot courtyard. If you are even remotely interested in DIY beer, we highly recommend you make it out!
  • Herb’s Cider just put two of their awesome ciders in 750 mL bottles! If you wanna take some of their Winesap or Northern Spy home with you, you’re in luck.
  • Melvin Brewing changed ownership hands.
  • Structures Brewing releases Raspberry Juice on Juice Saturday.
  • Lost Giants’ weekly infusion is a Raspberry Lemon Cider! They are a creative bunch and we love seeing what they come up with every week.

-New Pints-

Boundary Bay Brewery

Skipping Raindrops IPA

This anomaly of stormy summer weather propelled our course into discovering a spot of sunlight. We skipped rocks, felt raindrops and brewed a bright double-dry-hopped juicy IPA. Tropical hop aromas cascade into flavors of sweet citrus and melon finishing with a soft, gentle bitterness. Savor the flavor, endure the unpredictable and skip the raindrops with this fruity Summer IPA.
7% ABV

GRUFF Brewing Co.

German Style Hefeweizen

This tasty little treat is made with German wheat and a variety of Pilsner malts. It also likes to party to the sweet sounds of techno. That last part about the techno is not true, but I know the info above that is 100% accurate.

Kulshan Brewing

Sunnyland Stomp IPA

\

The Sunnyland neighborhood is truly one of Bellingham’s special places so it seemed only fitting to brew a beer to pay homage to this funky corner of town, and express our gratitude for being part of it. Similar to our classic Sunnyland IPA, but with some serious haze and big tropical fruit and berry notes, this is a bright and joyous beer, tailor-made for this neighborhood.

Structures Brewing

Feather Pale Ale

Pale ale hopped with Amarillo, Cascade, and Chinook. Cheers!

Stemma Brewing

Without Further D’Haze

A hazy IPA with low IBUs that features a soft mouthfeel and biscuit undertones. Hop flavors produce a hint of stone fruit and tart pineapple.

5.2% ABV

Wander Brewing

Vagare Italian Pilsner

A showcase of Italian grown, @weyermann_specialty_malts malted barley complimented by a beautiful dry-hopped bouquet of Tettnang hops. A clean and snappy malt profile caught in a floral-storm of refreshing hop fragrance. Mildly bitter, intensely enjoyable. Salute!

Yummy Bits IPA

A tantalizing blend of Ekuanot cryo, El Dorado, and Sabro hops intermingling with big juicy ripe peaches. Huge stone fruit character with minimal bitterness. Get your Bits while they’re fresh!
