Is it already time to start thinking about 2018? Yep! Especially when it includes talking about a stellar lineup of beer that we have planned for the Pacific Northwest next year. Always wanting to brew a wide variety of beers for its fans, 2018 is shaping up to be no different. Favorites like the year-round Gose and seasonal Roasted Rye are still featured, with a few new brews in the works (more on that in January!). Highlights include:
- Bits and Bobs. Spring will see a brand new beer enter the line up this year, and every year in fact! Bits and Bobs will be a rotating seasonal brew, a different beer every year, drawing upon the brewery's learnings from the prior 12 months. 2018 Bits and Bobs will feature a light, crisp malt profile, and will feature a hop that the brewery first experimented with in 2017. More to come in the next few weeks!
- Imperial Release Series. This series has expanded to six beers, rotating every two months. This means a return to the lineup of the Imperial Rye IPA, one of our first ever IPAs and a much loved favorite. And the Imperial Oatmeal Stout makes a return this winter too!
- Taproom Release Series. This series enables us to share a broader range of our line up of beers into distribution. A new beer every month will be released in draft (and sometimes package). Highlights include the 2017 Wine Enthusiast Top 25 brew Blimey That's Bitter! and 2018 Hop Idol beer (featuring the brewery's home brew competition winner).
We're excited to share with you these beers as we say cheers to 2018!
