Iron Horse Brewing Introduces More Than a New Beer: NWHFMBPA

Not just a new beer, but a whole new style of beer. Not just a name, but a whole new acronym. Iron Horse brewing is about to release Decision Maker, a beer it describes as a NWHFMBPA (Northwest Hop-Forward Malt-Balanced Pale Ale).

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, Iron Horse Brewing makes great beer while keeping its tongue firmly implanted in its cheek. That is, they’ve got a sense of humor. For more on that subject, see the post on the Iron Horse blog regarding this new beer. It’s basically an email string about the name and the label. See the press release below for some important information about the beer that is much less entertaining.

Iron Horse Brewery to Release Decision Maker DPADecisive Pale Ale

ELLENSBURG, WA (August 15, 2013) Iron Horse Brewery has decided to announce the release of its newest creation; Decision Maker: a northwest hopforward, maltbalanced paleish ale. Strict style guidelines never drive the brewing process at Iron Horse Brewery, rather, recipes come from innovation with a focus on a creative and delicious final product. Dryhopped with Mosaic hops, Decision Maker has an amazing aroma making this hoppy paleish ale very, very drinkable. Decision Maker will hit the shelves (22oz bottles) and tap lineups in early September and will remain through the end of October.

“I definitely feel like this is one of our finest creations thus far,” said General Manager Greg Parker, “but I am completely and unabashedly biased, so really you should have a Decision Maker and decide for yourself. It really is a beer that knows what you want.”

Official Kick Off ParTay
Iron Horse Brewery and The Beer Shoppe are hosting an official release party on September 6th, 2013 starting at 5:00pm at The Beer Shoppe in Yakima, WA. There will be swag, raffle items, and of course plenty of Decision Maker for consumers to sample.
