stone brewing: arrogant - who you callin' wussie
For far too long the tyrannical industrialized beer overlords have disgraced and cheapend the noble heritage of the pilsner with their relentless multi-generational downward drive to commericalized homogenization. Over decades, this once vaulted style has been slowly and methodically gutted, bringing forth a soulless and anemic result, all the while spending billions in advertising to convince the unwitting public that their fizzy yellow end result was beer. Arrogant will not have it. They are striking back for true craft by stealing the pilsner back from their evil cluthched, and restoring it to its almighty glory. They do it cheaply. They do it right. Choose vapidity, or choose righteousness...but whatever you do, choose wisely!
OVERCAST EsPRESSO STOUT
Smooth, dark and delicious year round. Overcast is one of Oaskshire's most recognized and decorated beers. Brewed as an oatmeal stout and blended with locally roasted coffee, cold-brewed in-house. Espresso Stout is a fixture of life in the PNW - just like our Overcast skies!
2 LIVE BREW BROWN ALE
The second, 10 year anniversay ofIron Horse Brewery requires a throwback to the good ol' days of offensive rap. This dark brown ale contains sweet caramel notes which give off a taosty aroma adding to the thick full body. Rich, savory and with hop kick to the balance this is a big dark beer you're gonna wanna pop all night.
AVAILABILITY: July- September
Stone brewing : stone citrusywit
stone brewing punched up their own wit with the dynamic duo of tangerine and kaffir lime leaf. the fruit-forward aromatics and falvors are perfectly balanced, so there is no need to bother adding a slice (leaf) to the rim of your glass. Even with thus lack of unnecessary garnush, you won't find an absense of intense fruit. each dryly refreshing, citrusy sip of this coriander-spiced, tangerine-infused, Mandarina Bavaria-hopped creation will satisfy even the morst hardcore fan.
speakeasy ales & lager: big DADDY IPA
Big Daddy IPA is a hop-head's delight, a generously dry-hopped yet surprisingly drinkable American-style India Pale Ale. Poured into a standard American pint glass, the beer is a golden straw color, with tight carbonatipn and a slightly off-white head that leaves a lovely lacing. The aroma is floral, fresh grass, pine needles, grapefruit, and some subtle notes of fresh bread.
northwest brewing company: hoppy bitch ipa
This Northwest IPA is bold and balanced with a rich malty flavor and a strong hop presence. We use Premium 2 Ronw, Munich, Victory, and Crystal malts, a perfect base for showcasing Yakima-grown Columbus hops. After one sip you'll agree, this is one happy bitch of a beer.
THE GREAT ARTISAN BEVERAGE Company history
At the end of 2012, a group of locally owned family distributors in the Pacific Northwest recognized that customer demand for quality craft and specialty products was rising and a unified approach to the management and distribution of craft and specialty beverages was needed. To this end they joined forces to form the Great Artisan Beverage Company.
