Hale’s to Test New Pale Ale at Full Throttle Bottles Tasting Tomorrow

June 15th, 2010 · No Comments · Events, Washington Breweries

Come on down to Full Throttle Bottles in Georgetown tomorrow night (Wednesday) from 5pm to 7pm to sample some of the Hale’s Brewery lineup, including a new “test” pale ale. I’ll be there hanging out as well, so come by and say hello! This is also a good chance to try Hale’s beers for the first time or to reacquaint yourself if maybe you live on the other side of town and don’t make it to the brewery very often (yeah, like me). Their Supergoose has become a go-to IPA for me when I see it on tap, and their recent Seattle Beer Week Double IPA made me a happy man as well. You’ll get to try both of those, and more. More details from Erika at Full Throttle are below.

Georgetown, WA.  Can you believe it’s SUMMER? Bring on the beer!! Tomorrow we welcome Rob from Hale’s Brewery in Fremont, they of the “Think Globally, Drink Locally” idea (good idea huh??). Rob will be bringing brewer Lincoln and a special “test” pale he created just recently! As an added bonus, he’ll also be bringing their regular pale so we can all compare! Plus of course, our regular line-up of fun Hale’s beer listed below! You know you wanna be a guinea pig!!
Kolsch German Style Ale: This German style ale is a refreshing golden ale. It is fermented using a genuine Kolsch yeast, then cold lagered. The result is a delicious, light ale that shares many flavor characteristics of a traditional pilsner. The fold lagering of the finished ale produces its crisp, clean taste.
Pale Ale:  First brewed on July 4, 1983, Hale’s Pale Ale is the brewery’s flagship, and the northwest’s premier pale ale. Hale’s Pale strikes a delicate balance of malts and hops, and is embellished by the distinctive fruitiness of the brewery’s special yeast. A Northwest Classic! 
Supergoose IPA:  If you’re one of those IPA fanciers who can never seem to find “quite enough” hops in your favorite style, we recommend you give this Goose a flyer. It’s got hops, and then some more, and lots of malt backbone, and a nose that will make you swear you’re driving through Yakima in August. And of course, we know, there can never be “too Many” hops in your favorite beer, but this one could be getting close…
Seattle Beer Week Double IPA:  Hale’s was given the honor of being chosen as the brewer for the ‘official’ beer of Seattle Beer Week 2010. They delivered with a Double IPA that packs a big flavor punch – just what you’d want in a brew to represent a week that honors ALL beers. A big malt backbone balanced by an impressive hop character, and then another wallop of hop aroma in the finish. They say very fun to make, we say extremely fun to drink.
El Jefe Hefeweizen: “El Jefe”, translated, means “The Boss”, or “The Chief”. That’s the position that this new hefeweizen from Hale’s Ales aspires to. El Jefe pushes the wheat beer category to a new level — . The flavor profile is “true Bavarian Style” — complex and mouth-filling, with the spicy and fruity influences that only genuine hefeweizen yeast can produce. Craft beer lovers are ready to take this next step in their appreciation of the unique beers of the world. This is a beer that combines old world quality and character with new world freshness–the best of both worlds.
We will be tasting these tomorrow, Wednesday, June 16, from 5pm-7pm. Only $4 for all of them!  Our usual “be green” offer applies: Bring your own tasting glass and save a dollar!!

Thanks, Erika & Crew  

And here’s the requisite fine print for the tastings: Due to licensing laws in the state of Washington, we are limited to serving no more than 2oz per varietal/flavor and no more than a grand total of 8oz. You must be over the age of 21 to imbibe. (And I don’t mean dog years…)
