Eight of the breweries in the South Sound Brewery Coalition (SSBC) are releasing eight different versions of one beer. Kind of. Actually, it’s eight different versions of a beer brewed with one common ingredient: Kveik yeast. They are referring to it as an “isolation collaboration.” The releases start on Friday, June 26.
The South Sound Brewery Coalition thinks that they are stronger together even if they’re apart. Instead of having a loyalty program that rewards people for visiting one brewery again and again, they’ve offered beer drinkers a disloyalty program that encourages people to go drink at all of the 13 breweries in the coalition. Read about it here.
Starting on Friday, June 26th, eight breweries in the South Seattle Brewery Coalition (SSBC) begin releasing eight different versions of Kveik Yeah! The participating breweries are listed below.
“A beer brewed with the goal of spreading the love and giving people the excuse to be disloyal and drink everywhere,” says the SSBC website. “This is not one beer, but an isolation collaboration – eight different beers brewed with a unified ingredient – Kveik Yeast. What the heck is Kveik?! It’s a generations-old Norwegian yeast that does magical things in high heat and in little time. It’s fun and funky and brewers are swooning over it.”
“We invite you to grab a pint, can or growler and start your very own Tour de Kveik. There are IPAs, Doubles, a Sour and more! After 3 months of closures and changes to every taproom to ensure the health and safety of future beer drinkers, it is finally time for SSBC breweries to reopen for on-premise beer service…Kveik Yeah!”
“In a time of isolation and uncertainty, when hugs were replaced with 6ft, the South Seattle brewery village rallied together to prove that sticking together, even virtually, does make you stronger. If there is one thing the last few months have reminded us, it’s that it does in fact take a village.”
