We love to brew craft beers that are unique to the four seasons, as well as one-off specialty craft beers using new ingredients. We’ll just have to see where inspiration takes us.
Mossback Northwest Red - NW Red Ale - ABV: 5.5% IBU: 40
Classic. Set in his ways. A bit cranky. A bit mean. A bit bitter. A 'Mossback'... Our Seasonal Northwest Red Ale features the much beloved pair of Willamette and Cascade hops. Old school meets New, in the best of ways.
Washington SMaSH Fresh Hop - Washington Grown Fresh Hop Ale - ABV: 5.6% IBU: Unknown 100+%
Single Malt, Single Hop and Single State. A much anticipated, once-a-year release, this unique ale is brewed using all Washington State malt and hops. We use 200 pounds of fresh, whole-cone Amarillo hops, picked just the day before at Virgil Gamache Farms in Toppenish in Yakima Valley. The result is the essence of a time and place: the aroma of Washington’s vast hopyards during the late summer harvest. Amarillo’s distinctive grapefruit character shines, as well as subtler notes of tropical fruits and citrus.
Sol Patch Fresh Pumpkin Ale - Pumpkin Ale - ABV: 6.0% IBU: 35
Brewed once a year using only locally grown fresh pumpkins, Sol Patch Fresh Pumpkin Ale is an Autumn staple. Amber colored with hints of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel and fresh roasted pumpkin.
2016 Viognier Blonde Sour - Barrel Aged Brett/Sour Ale with Viognier Grape Juice - ABV: 6.5% IBU: Unknown
One of our favorite annual projects, the 2016 Viognier Blonde Sour is our Bainbridge Blonde Ale that spent about a year and a half in four oak barrels, blended with Viognier grape juice pressed for us by Eagle Harbor Winery. The barrels have been inoculated with our house blend of Brett (funky 'wild' brettanomyces yeast strains) and reused for several years now to develop their unique character. Tart, funky, winey, delicious, and rare!
Wing Point Winter Ale - Northwest Winter Warmer - ABV: 7.0% IBU: 40 (November)
As the days get darker and the rains move in, it’s time for a beer best drunk with friends in the comfort of a warm pub. Wing Point Winter Ale is our version of a Northwest Winter Warmer, full-bodied with a malt complexity showing caramel, toffee, dried fruit and chocolate, with a hint of hopiness to remind you of the fir trees outside. Which is appropriate because we put Doug Fir boughs in it too. Happy Holidays!
