The Artists Series

 

I’ve been looking forward to this since we first decided to open a brewery….. We’re announcing a brand new line of beers that we’re calling “The Artists Series”. Anyone who’s been in the brewery while we’re working has seen (or heard really) what a big role music plays in the life of the brewery. We’re hoping to share some of that love with you through beer.

This first beer is dedicated to a band that’s been one of my favorites for several years: BOAT. Pound for pound they’re one of the best power-pop bands operating out of the Northwest and as such the only beer that seemed appropriate is a classic Pacific Northwest style IPA.

Of course, in the same way that BOAT has charted their own course, we had to do the same. While we took a traditional stab at the hopping profile of a Northwest IPA, I used our favorite yeast to give it a malty bite, a sweeter finish and a mellower bitter than a normal Northwest IPA. On top of that wonderful base is a hefty helping of citrus and passionfruit aromas and a sneaky, late bitter that’ll surprise you.

I hope you love it as much as I love BOAT.

To introduce you to the band, I’ve built a Spotify playlist of some of my favorites – turn it up real loud, pour a pint and enjoy!

And you can learn more about BOAT and their music by visiting their site.
