Iron Horse Brewery to Release Decision Maker DPA – Decisive Pale Ale

August 14th, 2013 · No Comments · Beer Releases

The team at Iron Horse Brewery has quite the sense of humor. In an industry where there are pretty much no regulations for what style you want to call your beer, you might as well have fun with it. You should read this blog post from Iron Horse, which follows their creative process for coming up with the name for this DPA. Or, is it a NWHFMBPA (Northwest Hop-Forward Malt-Balanced Pale Ale)? Either way, I’ll look forward to trying this.

Press Release:

ELLENSBURG, WA (August 15, 2013) Iron Horse Brewery has decided to announce the release of its newest creation; Decision Maker: a northwest hop­forward, malt­balanced pale­ish ale. Strict style guidelines never drive the brewing process at Iron Horse Brewery, rather, recipes come from innovation with a focus on a creative and delicious final product.
Dry­hopped with Mosaic hops, Decision Maker has an amazing aroma making this hoppy pale­ish ale very, very drinkable. Decision Maker will hit the shelves (22oz bottles) and tap line­ups in early September and will remain through the end of October.

“I definitely feel like this is one of our finest creations thus far,” said General Manager Greg Parker, “but I am completely and unabashedly biased, so really you should have a Decision Maker and decide for yourself. It really is a beer that knows what you want.”

Official Kick Off Par­Tay
Iron Horse Brewery and The Beer Shoppe are hosting an official release party on September 6th, 2013 starting at 5:00pm at The Beer Shoppe in Yakima, WA. There will be swag, raffle items, and of course plenty of Decision Maker for consumers to sample.
