HAPPY NEW YEAR
In the world of beer we have a lot to look forward to this year.
We have just brewed the first Collabeeration beer with New Belgium. New Belgium Brewing is now a legal brewer in the State of WA, operating within the Elysian Capitol Hill brewery. The first version of The Trip, a Belgian-style Trippel/IPA hybrid was brewed last Thursday. A release at the end of February is scheduled for this draught-only product at fine beer retailers around the Puget Sound. It will of course be on tap at all three Elysian locations.
We have started to send some beer to the Bay Area. We hope to have full distribution by Spring from San Jose to Sacramento.
