Today, seven brewing companies operate eight breweries in Bellingham, Washington. Not too shabby for a city of its size. No doubt, Bellinghamsters know a thing or two about beer. Recently, Bellingham Tap Trail, which is sort of like the Beer Advocate of Bellingham, conducted an online survey to see which IPA was the local favorite. Boundary Bay Brewery’s Cedar Dust IPA took home top honors.
Here’s the press release from Boundary Bay about this victory.
Cedar Dust IPA voted Best IPA in Bellingham
Bellingham, Wash. – August 12, 2016 – Boundary Bay Brewery’s Cedar Dust IPA won the Bellingham Tap Trail’s recent online poll. To celebrate IPA Day on August 4, Bellingham Tap Trail asked users to vote for their favorite locally brewed IPA.
Brewed with four varieties of hops, all bred and grown in Washington state, Cedar Dust IPA has a distinctive herbal pine & citrus aroma. The addition of Mosaic® hops provide subtle undertones followed by a spicy, earthy mouthfeel. Smooth and naturally carbonated, it has a unique blend of malts (including a secret dark malt), which provide just enough backbone to balance its big hop character. Complex, delicious and refreshing! As they say, a bit of wood makes a big difference.
“We know Bellingham breweries make great IPAs,” Brewer Steve Ellison says. “We’re happy that our community is enjoying Cedar Dust so much. You keep drinking it, we’ll keep making it!”
Beer Stats: 16°P OG // 66 IBU // 6.5% ABV
