2) Blonde Ale. Based on a pre-­‐Prohibition lager recipe, this is a perfect summer session beer. Very light yet surprisingly complex due to the diverse grain bill. Hallertauer hops lend a slightly spicy, herbal finish. 13 IBUs 4.2% ABV

Dick’s Brewing Company, Centralia

1) Dick’s Golden Ale. This offering from Dick’s is one of the lighter beers we produce. That doesn’t mean it is light in flavor! A traditional British golden ale brewed with 2-­‐row malted barley and a touch of crystal malt, balanced with a substantial amount of hops. 5.2% ABV

2)Dick Danger Ale. Our flagship beer. A large percentage of black malt gives this distinctive ale its dark brown black color and that slightly roasted flavor.

Mac & Jack’s Brewing, Redmond

1) African Amber. This beer erupts with a floral, hoppy taste, followed by a well rounded malty middle, finishing with a nicely organic hop flavor. Locally sourced two row grain and a blend of specialty malts give our amber its rich taste. Further complexity is achieved by leaving the beer unfiltered, providing exceptional flavor, as well as giving our amber its unique “cloudy” look. Lastly, we actually place a bag of fresh, locally grown, Yakima valley hops in each keg.

2) Two Tun IPA. Mac & Jack’s IPA is a refreshing, smooth, & balanced India Pale Ale. Using a variety of specialty malts and plenty of locally grown Yakima valley hops, we have created an IPA that has great hop flavor without being bitter. Pale roasted malts give our IPA a deep golden hue, and solid malt backbone, which nicely compliments its crisp hop finish. Copious quantities of hops are added very late in the boil giving the beer its floral aroma and hop forward character.

3) Cascadian Dark Ale. Pale & dark roasted malts join together with generous portions of Yakima Valley hops in this unique new style of beer that was born in the Northwest. All the rich malty goodness you would expect from dark ale is accented by the hop kick of an IPA. Citrus and floral aroma is complimented by velvety smooth roasted malt flavor, followed by a distinctive dry hop finish. A Northwest style of beer which boldly exhibits the wealth of local ingredients that make this such a great beer region.

Odin Brewing, Seattle

1) Odin’s Gift. Odin’s Gift is a Juniper Amber Ale, a bold yet balanced filtered ale that can be paired with a variety of great foods or enjoyed by itself.

2) Freya’s Gold. Freya’s Gold – Kolsch Style Ale is a light, crisp, and refreshing ale. This ale goes through a long cold conditioning phase much like a lager to blend and smooth out the flavors. Freya’s Gold is also balanced with acidulated malt and brewed with a touch of ginger to give a unique taste and drinking experience. 23 IBUs 4.5% ABV

3) Viking Gold. Viking Gold– XPA is a brew that takes on a unique Craft/Import blended style with a rich malt forward aroma, a full flavor of citrus and light bread, and a combined bite of yeast, noble hops and faint wheat that quickly passes to a tangy, very refreshing finish. 25 IBUs 4.5% ABV

Port Townsend Brewing, Port Townsend

2) Brewer’s Choice TBA

Redhook Brewery, Woodinville

1) Sunnyside Up. Sunnyside Up is a Peached Triple, a subtly sweet strong ale with a high carbonation level adding an effervescent quality akin to champagne. Peaches were added post fermentation. The fruity, spicy and warming characteristics balance with the soft malts to create an easy-­‐to-­‐drink yet complex brew. At 10.2% ABV, this peached triple is ready to drink now, but can also be cellared for up to 2 years to intensify the flavor.

2) Wit. Redhook’s twist on the Belgian style ale is the addition of fresh ginger, which adds a refreshing snappiness to this lighter-­‐bodied wheat beer.

3) Redhook IPA. The generous addition of hops both during the boil and at the end of the fermentation process (dry-­‐hopping) gives our India Pale Ale its characteristic bitterness and piney citrus aroma and flavor. The medium body, crisp finish, and moderate alcohol and IBU levels makes this one of America’s most drinkable and best-­‐selling IPAs. 44 IBUs 6.5% ABV

Roslyn Brewing, Roslyn

1) Roslyn Belgian Ale. This unfiltered, Belgian-­‐Style Ale is deep golden in color and uses traditional Belgian malts and yeast, with an added uniqueness from the Calypso hop variety producing a smooth drinking beer with fruit aromas and a subtle bitterness. 48 IBUs 6.5% ABV 2) Brookside Pale Lager A pale lager beer made without the darker malts that we use in Roslyn Beer. It is hopped primarily with Yakima Hallertau hops, and may remind you of a beer you’d find at a small gasthaus in Germany. It is especially popular with people who like full-­‐bodied, lighter beers with mild hopping, and is named for the Brookside neighborhood of Roslyn. 25 IBUs 4.5% ABV

Schooner EXACT Brewing, Seattle

1) 3 Grid IPA. A northwest-­‐style IPA uses a blend of hops from Yakima to give it a big, juicy, tropical, citrus flavor. The light caramel and soft bready malts balance but don’t interfere with the big hop character. It finishes dry leaving you ready for more. 62 IBUs 6.7% ABV
