The beer-loving folks at Zeeks Pizza requested that Aslan Brewing create a special beer to be served as some of their restaurants. No problem, right? The thing is, Zeeks stipulated that this new brew be made using nothing but Washington-grown ingredients. Luckily, we live in one of the few places in the world where such a request is not unreasonable.
Introducing Flannel Blizzard IPA, a beer brewed using hops from the Yakima River Valley (duh) and grains from the Skagit Valley. More specifically, the hops came from Roy Farms in Moxee, WA and the barley and wheat were malted by Skagit Valley Malting.
Flannel Blizzard is available now at Aslan Brewing, but the majority of this beer will be sent off and available next week at the following Zeek’s locations: Belltown, Queen Anne, Lynnwood, West, Seattle, Phinney, Ravenna, Dravus, Greenlake, Bothell, Kirkland, Bellevue, and Capitol Hill. Zeeks will donate five percent of the beer’s sales at these locations to the Skagit Land Trust.

A very bright and highly drinkable pale ale, brewed in partnership with the good people of Zeek’s Pizza and Skagit Valley Malting. The malt bill consists of Pilsner and Wheat malts from Skagit Valley Malting along with Chinook, Centennial and Cascade hops from Roy Farms in Moxee, WA. The result is a refreshingly dry, not overly hazy, smooth beer expressed with overtones of lemon and lime.
