Atwood Ales

Farm to Warehouse & “What is Hip?” Rosehip Saison

Catch Atwood’s two newest bottles at the Bellingham Farmer’s Market, or the Stemma Collaboration (Farm to Warehouse) in Stemma’s taproom. Cheers to funky beer!

Aslan Brewing Co.

Fish Have Feelings – Salmon Safe IPA

“The ale with them scales has migrated back to Bellingham. For this beer, we sourced Salmon-Safe Certified Hops from @royfarms_hops. To obtain this certification, farmers need to minimize or eliminate their use of harmful chemicals, which prevents any run-off that could negatively impact a salmons habitat. Roy Farms believes Salmon-Safe farming is “the right thing to do as a business! We want to be as nurturing to the soil as possible because the soil is our greatest asset. We also love fishing and eating salmon and want to take care of them so that they are around for everyone to enjoy.”⠀

Pineapple aroma and a subtle spicy kick, this juicy IPA packs a punch!

7.2% ABV

Kulshan Brewing Co.

Tomyhoi IPA

A balanced and bold IPA, Tomyhoi is hazy in appearance, but bright and exuberant in character. Healthy doses of spelt malt and flaked oats create a smooth and pillowy malt platform, necessary to support an aggressive hop profile. Radiant hop notes of lime and lemon zest practically jump out of the glass to greet the drinker, and are accented by more subtle notes of tropical and orchard fruits to create a bright and juicy IPA.

Menace Brewing

MOPA! Mosaic Pale

his beer is something to cheer about! It is Pale Ale showcasing our use of Mosaic hops. It’s got a really nice bitterness, with great hop aroma and flavor. Stop by today and give it a try!

5% ABV

Cake Eater Juicy IPA

This new rotational IPA is bright and citrusy with notes of peach, mango and mandarin on the nose. The mouth feel is thick and soft with smooth and juicy citrus fruits in the flavor. This brew features Citra, Mosaic, Loral and Bravo hops, making it extra well-rounded and juicy IPA perfect for ending the summer.

6.7% ABV, 24 IBU

 

Structures Brewing

Daydream IPA

“We are stoked on this Citra and Amarillo hopped IPA…as always we strive to blurr the lines between a big mouthfeel and statistically dry.”

7.5% ABV

Wander Brewing

Ground Hop Day

The 2019 release of this annual brew is a diverse cocktail of Saaz hops alongside heavy dry hop additions of Triumph and Styrian Wolf. Ground Hop Day 2019 brings mind-bending sensations of banana, creamsicle, and lemongrass while remaining approachable and satisfying for the grind of the long harvest season!
