Seattle’s Fremont Brewing and Portland’s Breakside Brewery decided to brew a beer for Seattle Beer Week. The result, Back to the Future IPA. Here is the release information straight from Fremont Brewing:
Back to the Future IPA
This collaboration is a liquid representation of the Pacific Northwest craft beer community; a cross-border collaboration between Seattle’s Fremont Brewing and Portland’s Breakside Brewing. We decided to brew this beer for Seattle Beer Week and will release another beer for Portland Beer Week…stay tuned.
This bromance beer is named Back To The Future IPA as a nod to the futuristic hops used in each of our releases; Jarylo and Equinox in Seattle and Azaaca and Ella in Portland.
So, why did you collaborate? Thanks for asking. We came up with the idea to collaborate while traveling through the Mexican desert on a vision quest search of the little-known but potent Chulo Berry. Although the Chulo Berry eluded us that trip, we decided to dedicate what remains of our very existence to finding that damn berry. And since that idea creeped us out, we decided to brew these beers and chill out. So, pop the top, pour yourself a little adventure and Chill Out as you ride Back To The Future on this magic hop carpet ride!
Availability: Released, 5/7 at Chuck’s Hop Shop (85th) and available across Washington
