Whether your liver likes it or not, Seattle Beer Week (SBW) is coming up in a few months (May 9th to 19th). One of the highlights of SBW is that each year a different brewery is chosen to craft an official beer for the event. In previous years the SBW brews have included Pike Double IPA, Hale’s Double IPA, Maritime Decompression Ale, and Elysian Split Shot Espresso Milk Stout.
Fremont Brewing has the honors this year, and they announced the details of the beer in their newsletter yesterday:
Seattle Beer Week Official 5th Anniversary Beer
4.5%, Organic Pale Ale using Cowiche Canyon Organic Simcoe & Citra Hops…and in a Can! Can, Bottle and Draught.
We are very honored to be chosen to brew this year’s Seattle Beer Week beer and to honor the occasion, we chose to focus on the organic Cowiche hops and the can. Stay tuned, this one is about to get really fun…
I love the fact that this year’s SBW is something sessionable. It’s a bonus that it comes in a can.
I’ll be looking forward to trying this.
