Instant Karma IPA release tomorrow – the next beer in the Bottleshop Collaboration Project


Back in March we told you about the Bottleshop Collaboration Project, a series of beers brewed by local breweries exclusively for a group of Seattle-Tacoma area bottleshops. The goal is to promote a spirit of comradery and share a mutual love of good beer. The first beer in the series, Soul Proprietor IPA by Cloudburst Brewing, was release in late March.  The second beer in the series, brewed by Fremont Brewing, is scheduled for release tomorrow, Friday, June 30th.

Instant Karma IPA will be released simultaneously at Fremont Brewing’s Urban Beer Garden and all of the participating bottleshops. Available on draft where applicable and in 16-ounce cans. The beer’s specs are shown below. By the way, if you’re new to the “IPA haze craze” and you’re wondering what it is that makes hazy IPAs hazy, take a look at the grain bill below, noting that 2-row malted barley is in darn near every craft beer you drink, hazy or not.

  1. Any chance you could include a map of participating shops? Would be super handy if you could save all your readers from spending 10 minutes trying to manually locate each shop on Google Maps…

  2. You rely on Google maps to know where these bottle shops are? You do not seem worthy of these beers.
