Two Washington breweries teamed up to create a particularly treacherous beer. North Jetty Brewing of Seaview and Heathen Brewing of Vancouver collaborated to produce an Imperial Red Ale that captures the relentless spirit of the region. Graveyard of the Pacific is a bold and aromatic ale named after a stretch of particularly treacherous water—from Tillamook Bay in the south to Vancouver Island in the north—that has claimed over 2,000 vessels and over 700 lives.
Two official release parties are planned. The first is at North Jetty Brewing in Seaview on January 25th, the second is at Heathen Brewing’s Feral Public House in downtown Vancouver on January 26th. More info about all of this can be found below.
On December 20th the Head-Heathen, Sunny Parsons, made the two-hour trek to the Long Beach Peninsula to join the Jetty Brew Crew for the second annual brew day.
Together we crafted an Imperial Red Ale that captures the relentless spirit of this region. Graveyard of the Pacific is a full bodied Imperial Red bursting with aroma and flavor from a hardy dose of Amarillo, Galaxy, Columbus, and Simcoe hops. With Citrus in the forefront followed by a hint of passion fruit and floral and just a touch of earthiness this beer will not disappoint. It’s well balanced with a nice mouth feel and color coming from the Crystal, Honey, and Chocolate malts.
Even at 10% ABV and 100 IBU, Graveyard of the Pacific is a big beer that is smooth and very drinkable. The final product was improved by the killer artwork done by artist Kyle Shold, which will grace the label of the bottle. Kyle captured the feel of the stretch of water from Tillamook Bay, past the treacherous Columbia River Bar to the tip of Vancouver Island that has claimed over 2,000 vessels & more than 700 lives. This unforgiving combination of current, fog, storms, waves, and rocks has long been known by one name: The Graveyard of the Pacific.
Graveyard of the Pacific will be available for a limited time at select bottle shops around Southwest Washington and coastal locations as well as on draft at Feral Public House and Heathen Brewing in Vancouver, WA and North Jetty Brewing in Seaview, WA.
Release parties are scheduled over the following two days: January 25th at Heathen’s Feral Public House located at 1109 Washington St in Vancouver, WA from 6:00pm-8:00pm and January 26th at North Jetty Brewing located at 4200 Pacific Way in Seaview WA from 5:00pm-9:00pm.
