Double Mountain & Fort George Collab Release Party, Saturday, July 29th, 4p

Rivers have had a strong influence on the shape and culture of the Pacific Northwest. They’ve carved landscapes, provided power and riches, and denoted borders. In this case it has been a force for collaboration. Hood River and Astoria are connected by the mighty Columbia River, and Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom and Fort George Brewery has taken that fact to inspire their latest collaboration. “A River Runs Through It” Hop Shake IPA is full of ripe juicy citrus notes and earthy bitterness, and we are hosting its Tacoma release.
Join us Saturday, July 29th, starting at 4p, when we host both Double Mountain and Fort George for a brewers’ event more fun than a river float trip. In addition to having A River Runs Through It IPA on tap, we will also be tapping up awesome beers from both breweries, including Double Mountain Vaporizer Pale Ale, Dark & Moody Imperial Stout, and the epic Great Notion BrewingReuben's Brews/ Fort George 3-Way IPA. You won’t want to miss this.

Barrel-Aged Unicorn Tears Release w/ Fremont & Perennial

“In the Time Before Light, Unicorns ruled the Universe. And Time passed. Until it stopped passing and began to make Beer. And it was good. But Time was Lonely, so it begat two Breweries. And thusly Fremont Brewingand Perennial Artisan Ales were spat into the World. And they made Beer. And it was good. When, Lo, one Day, they made Beer together and aged it in Bourbon Barrels for a long time. And then they added Cherries. And Aged it a long time. But it wasn’t good enough for their elevated taste. So, they added Unicorn Tears. And it was Good. Behold, Burst Forth into the World is Barrel-Aged Unicorn Tears.”

Join us as we celebrate the unbridling of this magical beer, Tuesday, June 27th, from 5-7p. Not only will we have Barrel-Aged Unicorn Tears on draft and in bottles, but we will have many other unique offerings from both Fremont and Perennial on tap. Don’t miss this rarer than rare opportunity to experience a myth and a miracle up-close (watch out for that horn!).
