Now that it's officially Spring, let's talk about all the current new brews we have new on tap and coming up in the near future!
New On Tap Right Now
6.0% ABV, 33 IBU
Cascade hops // Copeland Pale malt
Our fifth beer in the SMASH series blends the floral and piney Cascade hop with a Copeland Pale malt. Dry-hopped for an aroma with subtle hints of fruit, there is a mellow-to-medium bitterness in the light mouthfeel. The golden-straw body has soft citrus tones hidden in the clean finish.
Crimson King Irish Red
6.0% ABV, 25 IBU
Cascade, Chinook, EKG hops // Copeland Pale, Black Barley malt
Cascade, Chinook, and EKG hops combine for this malty-smooth Irish Red Ale released on Saint Patrick's Day. Brewed for a rich and dark crimson body, there is an easygoing smokiness to pair with the subtle powdered cherry chocolate tones.
Flat-Penny Pale Ale
5.0% ABV, 39 IBU
Cascade and Northern Brewer hops // Copeland Pale, Munich, Victory Malt
A flagship Stones Throw brew named after flattening pennies on the local train tracks. This balanced yet, bitter beer is brewed with 2-Row and Specialty malt grains, Cascade and Northern Brewer hops. It has a malt-forward flavor and delicately hoppy aroma. Enjoy - it's been a while since this beer was on tap, and we're all excited to have it back, particularly Head Brewer Tony!
One upcoming familiar beer you'll see is the Tree Rings IPL - the dry-hopped lager perfect for spring sun, as well as the return of the Midnight Rider. Then we have a handful of fresh, never-brewed-before, beers!
Tree Rings India Pale Lager
6% ABV, 70 IBU
Mosaic, Simcoe hops // Violetta, Copeland Pale malt
This heavily dry-hopped lager has a perceived bitterness and fresh finish. The heavy hop aromas play into the light body, as the India Pale Lager has a zippy lemon, orange, and grapefruit citrus flavor to the light body. A freshly cut pinesap aroma fittingly lends itself to the Tree Rings name.
Midnight Rider Dark Lager
5% ABV, 23 IBU
Crisp and bready like a premium pilsner lager but with a powdery baking chocolate backdrop supported by a firm bitterness, this Schwarzbier-style dark lager is here to get us through Bellingham’s bleak midwinter. The Midnight Rider is dark in color but light in body with the soft and subtle chocolate aroma and flavor.
Intl. Women's Day Pink Boots Brew Oatmeal Pale
Brewed at Stones Throw by local women in the brewing industry using the Pink Boots Organization special blend of hops on International Women's Day, this Oatmeal Pale should be coming on tap in April. While this beer is just currently being transferred and not quite ready for the taps, we have the batch coming in around 5.5% ABV and 33 IBU.
The sixth beer in our SMASH series (Single Malt and Single Hop) will be coming out for our Bellingham Beer Week SMASH Fest Block Party. While we can't tell you what the single hop and single malt combo will be yet, our SMASH series has been one of our most popular projects, so we can't wait to brew this beer!
Also in the works will be a Session IPA and another IPA that's a touch lighter than the Neighborhood. Remember the Golden Rule IPA? This next IPA will be modeled after the Golden Rule's style, but with a little tweaking...
