Bottleshop Collaboration Project introduces new beer, brewed with De Garde Brewing

Washington Beer News - Sat, 04/25/2020 - 5:15pm

For the past three years, the Bottleshop Collaboration Project has created some outstanding beers. The original plan, introduced back in March of 2017, was to bring eleven of Western Washington’s top beer retailers together to create exclusive beers with some of the region’s best breweries. The latest beer in the series was just released and it sounds like something special brewed with one of Oregon’s most-esteemed breweries, Tillamook’s De Garde Brewing.

Here’s the announcement from The Beer Junction, which is one of the bottleshops involved in the project.

We’re excited to release our next beer with the Bottleshop Collaboration Project, a partnership between 11 independent Washington bottle shops.

In January 2019, members of the BCP drove down to @degardebrewing in Tillamook. Scroll through for a few pictures from that trip. The result was the beer we are releasing at 4 pm today—The Serinier, a spontaneous wild ale aged in oak barrels with Syrah and Viognier Grapes. Limit 2.”

We tried some last night and it is delicious. Thank you De Garde!

Available at Bottleworks, Chuck’s Hop Shop (both locations), Edison City Alehouse, Elizabeth Station, Pint Defiance, Special Brews, Teku Tavern, and of course The Beer Junction.

Everybody’s Brewing and Stoup Brewing team up for Devil’s Science Fair

Washington Beer News - Fri, 04/24/2020 - 2:14pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit

 

This new collaborative IPA from Everybody’s Brewing and Stoup Brewing tinkers with the usual laws of brewing science. Devil’s Science Fair IPA gets some expected tropical character from the hop profile, which features Galaxy, El Dorado, and Citra hops. No weird science there. Where things get a bit more adventurous, the brewers used a blend of three Kveik yeast strains, a higher-than-normal fermentation temperature, and a lower pitch rate. Science!

Originally hailing from the northern fringes of the European continent, Kveik yeast is a flexible little beast, and brewers often use it to push boundaries, letting it go wild and produce all kinds of interesting esters. For this beer, the brewers practiced a measured approach. Reportedly, the result is a tropical IPA that finishes bright, clean, and dry, “without any hint of stress.”

This is a limited-run beer but will make it out to the Seattle and Portland markets. Look for it at bottleshops, where you’re most likely to find it. Not likely it will make it out to the big retail chains.

Here is the release notice from Everybody’s Brewing

Everybody’s Brewing and Stoup Brewing have just released a collaborative Hazy IPA named The Devil’s Science Fair, available in 16oz cans at local bottle shops and markets throughout Washington and Oregon. The Devil’s Science Fair comes in at 6.7% ABV and 60 IBU, and pours a vibrant, hazy gold. Tropical fruit aroma and flavor can be attributed to the blend of Galaxy, El Dorado, and Citra hops as well as a unique blend of three Kveik yeast strains sourced from Sleight Labs (Seattle) and Imperial Yeast (Portland).

Kveik strains remain an intriguing ingredient and relevant player in the craft brewing industry. They have the unusual ability of running at a range of temperatures and pitch rates that would normally destroy other yeasts. Looking to produce big, fruity esters, some brewers attempt to push towards the extreme ends of these ranges. The approach of Stoup and Everybody’s, was a carefully calculated technique that called for very high temperatures combined with a low pitch rate that gives Devil’s Science Fair it’s super clean, bright, fruity finish, without any hint of stress.

This collaboration has been a long-awaited effort between the two breweries, and a very natural alliance. Both breweries take pride in the scientific, technical approach to beer production, while still enjoying the fun, innovative side of the industry. “Stoup’s motto is, ‘The art and science of beer,’ which is right in line with our mission here,” said Everybody’s Head Brewer, Adam McClure. We jumped at the chance to work with Stoup when the idea first came up at last year’s WA Brewers Awards. Says McClure of Stoup’s owner/brewmaster Brad Benson, ”I have a ton of respect for his approach to brewing and his vision of what craft brewing means to community, plus his beers are amazing.”

Though this will be the debut of this beer in 16oz cans, a first batch was released on draft only last month. The plan was for both breweries to do a second batch, with half going into cans and the other for more draft. The Covid-19 pandemic forced them to eliminate the draft side of things, but both thought the pandemic made it even more important to keep their plans for release of the cans. “In this time of national distance, where so many have experienced loss and distress, somehow the spirit of collaboration and creation seem to endure though the passion of brewers everywhere.” Adam and Brad agree, “If the culmination of this project could be anything to anyone, we hope that it is 16 ounces of hope and joy when they need it the most.”

Pay it Forward for healthcare workers at Burke Gilman Brewing, and others

Washington Beer News - Fri, 04/24/2020 - 1:13pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit

 

The first time I heard about this idea was a couple weeks ago when Chainline Brewing in Kirkland announced that it was offering free beer to local healthcare workers with the help of an anonymous donor. Then we heard about a similar thing happening at Narrows Brewing in Tacoma a few days ago. In Everett, Lazy Boy Brewing is offering free beer to Snohomish County healthcare workers this week, with the help of an anonymous donor. This whole “pay it forward with beer” thing is really gaining momentum. I like it.

At Crucible Brewing, more of the same. Their program invites the public to contribute. Just talk to the bartender when you stop in pick up beer to go, or give them a call.  “Show us your badge to receive a FREE 32-oz Crowler of your choice of beer. Please limit yourself to One Crowler per healthcare worker per visit. This to make sure more people get a chance to get a beer. We’ve got a Healthcare Gift Card behind the bar that our wonderful community has donated money to for you to use. We are also offering 25% off the tab to any Healthcare Workers that purchase beer TO GO or for Delivery.”

Now, you can add Seattle’s Burke-Gilman Brewing to the list.

If there are others, let me know. I love this idea.

It’s a simple plan, really. First, we all want to support our local breweries during these challenging times. Second, we all owe a debt of gratitude to the frontline healthcare workers who are risking so much to do their usually thankless jobs. Why not do both at the same time? You can support your local brewery by paying it forward, with beer, for local healthcare workers.

Burke-Gilman Brewing is offering a chance for you to do that. Here’ how.

Beer it Forward for Health Care Workers!

Laurelhurst, Seattle, Friday April 24th.

Let’s buy our front line health care workers a drink!

We all want to do something for the people staffing our health care system right now. Janitors, orderlies, lab techs, EMTs, nurses, nurse practitioners, PAs, doctors – every person pulling long shifts right now to keep us safe. We are all grateful to them, really beyond our ability to express with words, and when this is all over, I’m sure a lot of us would like to stand them a pint or two and say thanks in person. But, until then…

The liquor control board says we’re not allowed to give away beer. But, the excellent folks at Chainline Brewing in Kirkland showed us how to do this: they found a donor to pre-buy beer for health care workers in Kirkland. We haven’t found a big donor, but we can easily facilitate lots of small donors – let’s all buy our health care workers a drink to take home!

Starting now, in person or online, anyone can add a “crowler for health care heroes” to their bill – it’s just like our “Buy A Children’s Parent a Pint” program, but with beer to-go. Then if a front line worker stops in after their shift, they can just take home their choice (beer or cider – anything we have pouring – see our taplist here). If they call ahead (206.268.0220) or email (info@burkegilmanbrewing.com), we can even have it ready for them, so they can get home to their family with no delay.

To buy your neighbors on the front lines a drink, head to our online store. And pick up something for yourself while you’re there!

“Believe in Beer” fund offers relief for breweries and state brewers guilds

Press Release

Brewers Association Partners with Bottleshare to Create ‘Believe in Beer’ Relief Fund

Donations and applications for breweries in need accepted now through May 17

Boulder, Colo. •  April 24, 2020 — The Brewers Association (BA)—the trade association representing small and independent American craft brewers—has partnered with Bottleshare—a fundraising nonprofit dedicated to the craft beverage community—to create the Believe in Beer Fund to support breweries and state brewers guilds impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. The fund is open for breweries and guilds from across the country to apply for immediate financial assistance for operational expenses such as payroll, rent, and utilities.

According to a poll conducted by the Brewers Association earlier this month, independent craft breweries have been severely impacted by COVID-19, as evidenced by a sharp drop in craft category sales, massive furloughs or layoffs, and the high likelihood of a large number of brewery closures while under social distancing mandates. A majority of breweries do not think their business can last three months given current conditions.

“This is a very challenging time for breweries and their livelihoods are at risk. We hope creating this relief fund with Bottleshare will provide an answer to the most common question beer lovers have been asking during this unprecedented time: ‘How can I help?’” said Bob Pease, president and CEO, Brewers Association. “The craft beer community is rooted in collaboration and philanthropy, and now is our chance to come together and give back to our most vulnerable breweries.”

Beginning today through the end of American Craft Beer Week® on May 17, beer lovers can contribute to the fund by visiting charity.gofundme.com/believe- in-beer-relief-fund. Relief funds will be available to breweries and state guilds that demonstrate immediate financial need due to COVID-19 and meet the outlined criteria. Those in need can find more information at https://www.thebottleshare.org/breweries-and-guilds and apply for a grant at https://www.thebottleshare.org/grant-application. Bottleshare will review applications and select recipients based on need.

“Bottleshare was created to support industry workers and their families when they experience hardships,” said Christopher Glenn, founder of Bottleshare. “During this uncertain time, when support is needed more than ever, we’re proud to join efforts with the Brewers Association to reciprocate the love and strength that characterize the craft beer community and help the breweries that make it so special.”

For more information on the Believe in Beer Fund, please visit
https://www.thebottleshare.org/breweries-and-guilds.

The Brewers Association has also created a Coronavirus Resource Center to provide small and independent craft brewers with an evolving collection of resources to help weather the storm. All Brewers Association-authored resources relating to COVID-19 are available for free to both members and nonmembers.

Mill 95 offers financial relief for breweries

Washington Beer News - Thu, 04/23/2020 - 11:59am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit

 

Idaho Hop Producer Stepping Up to Assist Breweries Impacted by COVID-19 Shutdowns

Mill 95 is a world-class hop production facility located in Parma, Idaho. The company is currently offering assistance to breweries impacted by the pandemic shutdowns by providing low-cost or no-cost hops. Learn more about the program in the press release below and by visiting https://brp.mill95hops.com/

I was there on a Citra day.

About Mill 95

Many of Washington’s brewers are unfamiliar with Mill 95. It is currently self-described as “the nation’s most advanced hop pelleting mill,” probably by virtue of the fact that it is the newest. Mill 95 was established in 2016, rapidly erected in time for the 2017 harvest, and offers Idaho’s hop farmers with a local option for cold storage, cone-to-pellet processing, and logistics services. Previously, Idaho’s just-harvested hops were shipped, primarily, to facilities in Yakima for processing.

Perrault Hop Harvester control panel at Mill 95.

I visited Mill 95 during the 2019 harvest and saw the facility in action, from the shiny-new Perrault Hop Harvester to the kiln and the bailers. Located about 30 minutes west of Boise, the facility covers more than 63,000 square feet on 20 acres. It’s impressive and happily similar to the state of the art facility at Perrault Farms in Toppenish, WA.

As far as hop varieties are concerned, local farmers are growing Amarillo, Citra, Simcoe, Centennial, El Dorado, Sabro, and several others. Of course, Idaho 7 and Idaho Gem are on the list too.

Here is the press release about the Mill 95 relief program

Idaho Hop Producer Provides Relief During Crisis

Mill 95 develops initiative to help distressed breweries

Parma, ID – Mill 95, an Idaho processor and marketer of premium hops, is taking immediate and significant action to help craft breweries in need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Like many industries, craft breweries around the nation and across the world have been devastated by the impacts of the crisis, leaving their taprooms closed, workers furloughed, and are unable to get their beer to their customers. Craft brewers need help and need it now. With little to no sales, getting back on their feet will be tough to impossible due to cash flow issues.

In response to this need Mill 95 has launched a Brewery Relief Program. This program will enable Mill 95 employees to work directly with distressed craft brewers by supplying hops on a deeply discounted or no cost basis, in an effort to ease their cash battle. Mill 95 employees will also work with craft brewers in helping promote their breweries – with limited cash, investing in marketing is a far reach for these craft breweries.

Mill 95’s Brewery Relief Program revolves around direct communication between craft brewers and Mill 95 employees, where they will be empowered with tools that can really help these breweries. The tools include a portfolio of hops that can be immediately shipped to brewers at little to no cost, as well as providing varieties through 2021 under contract with extreme discounts. Mill 95 will also include craft breweries in digital media ads that are created in collaboration with breweries and disseminated effectively to reach the brewery’s target customers. And on a very limited local basis, Mill 95 has the ability to arrange for temporary work for furloughed brewery employees at Mill 95 and our partner hop growers.

To enroll in Mill 95’s Brewery Relief Program, brewers can simply visit https://brp.mill95hops.com/. An easy contact form to be completed by the brewery, and a Mill 95 employee will be in touch within 24 hours.

Fair Isle Brewing introduces you to a different kind of kiwi

Washington Beer News - Wed, 04/22/2020 - 3:58pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit

 

Kiwis are the size of a large hen’s eggs, brownish-green, and fuzzy. They grow in places like New Zealand and California. That’s a kiwi, right? Think again. Kiwi fruit is a different animal. It possesses some of the same flavor characteristics but is the size of a grape, not fuzzy, and thrives in environments like the one we have here in Western Washington.

Fair Isle Brewing in Seattle wants you to know about kiwi fruit (aka kiwi grape or kiwi berry). In particular, Ananasnaya Kiwi, which is what they used to create Ana, a new saison. The as-yet-unknown fruit that Fair Isle used came from Burnt Ridge Nursery and Orchards in Onalaska, Washington, not too far from Chehalis.

Here is the release notice from Fair Isle Brewing

Ana

a saison refermented with Ananasnaya Kiwi fruit

6.9% ABV || 375mL and 750mL bottles
BATCH: ONE || PACKAGED: JANUARY 2019

Ana is a tropical saison, kin to Cheri, and refermented on Ananasnaya Kiwi fruit from Burnt Ridge Nursery and Orchards in Onalaska, WA.

Kiwi fruit, aka kiwi berries or kiwi grapes, are perhaps the Pacific Northwest’s best kept secret. The fruit is reminiscent of a Kiwi, but is the size of a large grape and has a smooth skin that is edible and packed with tropical flavors, even sweeter than a traditional Fuzzy Kiwi. The fruit is grown on Kiwi vines and thrives in the Pacific Northwest climate, yet it’s not widely available.

We hand crushed the ultra-ripe fruit, added it to the empty fermenter and naturally fermented for 48 hours prior to adding the base beer on the fruit. This allowed for native microbes on the skin of the fruit to get a head start before our yeast culture took over – creating another layer of fermentation complexity. Ana then refermented for eight weeks on the fruit prior to being packaged.

The subtle mineral aroma of Ana is closely followed by notes of Pippin green apples, white grape skins, melon rind and bursts with tropical notes and bright acidity. Dry like our other saisons, but with a perceived sweetness coming from the kiwi, Ana stands apart.

Order it online. Available for pick up at the brewery or shipping to Washington addresses.

Washington Beer News - Wed, 04/22/2020 - 12:11pm

YOU ARE NOT ALONE IPA

SECOND BATCH AVAILABLE ON TUESDAY

To support our friends and colleagues in the industry who have been affected by COVID-19 related shutdowns we brewed YOU ARE NOT ALONE IPA. 100% of profits of this beer will be donated to Big Table, a charity supporting Washington State hospitality employees.

Three new beers from Best of Hands Brewery and Barrelhouse

Washington Beer News - Tue, 04/21/2020 - 8:41am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit

 

Best of Hands Brewery and Barrelhouse in West Seattle recently released three new beers, available in 16-ounce aluminum cans, to go at the brewery’s taproom. Depending on how sales go, some of it may make it into wider distribution. Depending on crowler shipments go, some of it may be available on draft (crowlers to go) at the brewery.

Two of them are IPAs: a West Coast IPA and NE IPA. The third beer is a gose: Goza Butler, with a name that is an homage to Geezer Butler, the bass player for Black Sabbath and label artwork that is a nod to the band’s 1971 album Master of Reality, a seminal record that influenced the shape of rock music for the ensuing decades.

Here are the release notes from Best of Hands Brewery and Barrelhouse.
