These are no longer normal times…So why drink something normal especially in 2021?
Three Years Coming (Washington State) – Two of Seattle’s most interesting Fremont neighborhood breweries are releasing a collaboration which was brewed at Fremont Brewing and aged in a foeder that was given to them by Floodland Brewing.
“It all started with a busted, leaky mess of an oak foedre from France. Adam Paysse, owner/brewer of Floodland, had purchased the foedre and upon receipt realized it would take a great deal more time and effort to bring it back to life than he had for the project and graciously gifted it to Fremont,” said Matt Lincecum, Co-Founder and Brewer of Fremont Brewing.
Brewed to commemorate the gifted foedre that Freemont Brewing refurbished, Woodland Park Avenue North is a 7.2% American Sour Ale that was hopped with aged Washington whole hop flowers and fermented in the refurbished oak wine foedre with mixed yeast cultures from Fremont and Floodland Brewing. After the initial foedre fermentation the beer was re-fermented on Washington grown Viognier grapes from the 2019 harvest and traditionally conditioned and carbonated in a 750ml bottle. Whew!
A Big Stout Collaboration (Indianapolis, IN) – Sun King Brewery and the 18th Street Brewery recently released a hefty collaboration which they did together to celebrate Indiana Statewide Stout Day. Brewed using actual churros from local bakeries, Sun King and 18th Street Brewery’s Churro-licious is an 8% ABV Pastry Stout that doesn’t disappoint.
Core Values (San Diego, CA) – Two SoCal brewing legends, Coronado Brewing Company and Karl Strauss Brewing Co, have collaborated on a new release that celebrates the West Coast IPA tradition and Pacific Northwest apples. Bursting with uber-juicy Mosaic, Citra, and Simcoe hops and crafted with fresh Pacific Northwest apples, Karl Strauss Core Values is a 6.8% ABV San Diego=Style IPA with fruit-forward flavors, aromas of citrus and pine and an apple ambience.
