Two Beers Jalapeno IPA at Noble Fir Tonight, Lazy Boy 5th Anniversary IPA Coming, and Seattle Business Article on Local Nanobreweries

May 5th, 2011 · No Comments · Events, Washington Breweries

A few things of note today. First up, brewmaster/owner Joel VandenBrink of Two Beers Brewing will be visiting the Noble Fir in Ballard tonight from 5pm to 9pm to enjoy a special keg of Two Beers Evolution IPA brewed with jalapenos. According to Joel:

We took our regular Evo. IPA, sliced up jalapenos really tiny and transferred the beer over them into the finish keg.  From there we added one more sliced and diced jalapeno to the keg that the beer is being poured from. It smells like peppers, but still drinks like an IPA with a lingering spice on the back of the tongue.

I also got a note from Shawn Loring over at Lazy Boy Brewing that they’ve crafted a new beer for their 5th Anniversary. This Imperial IPA comes in at 7.2% ABV and was hopped with Chinook and Falconer’s Flight hops. It is already available in their taproom, and it will be pouring at spots around Seattle next week.

If you haven’t seen it yet, check out this article by Anthony Adragna in the latest issue of Seattle Business Magazine. It highlights several local nanobreweries, as well as a couple breweries that started out at that size only to continue growing. It’s always great to see “the little guys” get some print exposure outside of dedicated beer papers/magazines.
