“It has always been our vision to begin a seasonal release program and after a little over one year in business, we did it today,” says Ghostfish Brewing, Seattle’s first gluten-free brewery. Today the award-winning brewery announced the release of Kai Dog Red IPA, the brewery’s first seasonal offering.
According to the brewery, “The earthy and full-bodied buckwheat malt flavor provides support for a bold mix of Citra, El Dorado, and Calypso hops.”
Ghostfish Brewing Releases Kai Dog Red IPA
Seattle, WA – They say that a dog is a man’s best friend. One dog, in particular has become the friend of many who have visited the taproom of Ghostfish Brewing Company.
Kai Dog Red IPA, the seventh packaged beer release from Ghostfish Brewing pays tribute to Kai, the brewery’s friendly golden retriever and unofficial mascot. A brilliant red body with a playful malt personality, greeting everyone with a friendly hop-forward bark.
“Kai has been a loyal supporter and constant companion to us since the beginning of this crazy adventure. You simply could not ask for a more devoted fan of everything Ghostfish. This amazing IPA is a tribute to his abundant contribution to what we are doing here.” said Randy Schroeder, Kai’s human and brewery co-owner.
The earthy and full-bodied buckwheat malt flavor provides support for a bold mix of Citra, El Dorado, and Calypso hops. “Buckwheat as a base malt is really unique. It has an earthy sweetness with cinnamon and strawberry overtones and it seems to amplify the more aggressive and aromatic components of most hop varieties – perfect for an IPA!” said Brewmaster Jason Yerger.
In addition to being 100 percent gluten-free, this beer is also made with no rice, corn or cane sugar. At 6.0 percent ABV, it’s complex, playful and deftly balanced. Available in 22 oz. glass bottles throughout the spring and summer months in the brewery’s taproom and a wide distribution throughout Western Washington.
