We welcome front line employee and Beer Nerd, Kevin Reed, to The BOB Happy Hour bar. Kevin shares with us his experience as a department manager of a local grocery store on the front lines during this COVID-19 Pandemic.
What we're drinking:
Bale Breaker Brewing - Yakima, WA
Clarity Rarity, Hazy IPA, 7% ABV, 45 IBU
"Complex hoppy aromas: mandarin orange, pineapple, mango, herbal."
Stoup Brewing - Seattle, WA
Citra Emergency IPA, 5.9% ABV, 50 IBU
"We like to call this one Sunshine In a Glass ... or Sunshine In Your Belly because it won't stay in that glass long. Our Citra® IPA is designed to be light and bright in both color and body. Your first sniff will elicit images of tropical fruit and citrus thanks to a healthy dose of Citra® hops."
Brothers Cascadia Brewing - Vancouver, WA
Bold As Love, Pacific Northwest IPA, 7% ABV
"We didn't hold back anywhere with this IPA, especially in the large additions of Mosaic, Amarillo and Simcoe hops in the boil and the fermenter. Its balanced body sets the perfect stage for this hoppy delicacy."
Old Schoolhouse Brewing - Winthrop, WA
Crystal Visions, New England Style IPA, 7% ABV, 55 IBU
"In early 2019, OSB Head Brewer Kyle Koger was finishing up a brew before heading out to lead a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon. His last brew would be ready for the public right as he was running the Crystal rapid, an epic section of the Colorado River…thus, Crystal Visions IPA was born, and lives on in this seasonal, commemorative brew."
Fortside Brewing - Vancouver, WA
Palisade 3, Wild Farmhouse Ale, 6.2% ABV
"Four stages of fermentation- primary on Kviek farmhouse yeast, extended secondary on Brettanomyces Clausenii, a tertiary fermentation on Willamette Valley grown Viognier grapes, and a final layer of complexity added via natural bottle conditioning."
