News today of two beer releases from Pyramid Brewing. One is a seasonal coffee pale ale and the other is a new year-round beer, a hazy IPA. This is the first time the company has packaged a hazy. More info below.
Whidbey Coffee Pale Ale
We collaborated with Whidbey Coffee to create a fantastic fall seasonal; it is everything you’d look for in an easy drinking coffee pale ale. We added Nugget and Cascade hops to round off the coffee notes with classic Northwest hops. We used Whidbey Coffee’s Founder’s Blend, which comes from central America and Indonesia, adding subtle dark chocolate and baking spice flavor that come to life through the roasting process.
Availability: Fall Seasonal
MALTS: 2-Row, Caramel 20
HOPS: Nugget, Cascade
COFFEE: Whidbey Coffee: Founder’s Blend
Blazing Bright Hazy IPA
SEATTLE, Wash. (Oct. 14, 2019) – Pyramid Brewing Co. today announced the introduction of its first-ever packaged hazy IPA, Blazing Bright. Starting October 15, Blazing Bright will be available year-round as the eighth beer in Pyramid’s annual line-up. This medium-bodied brew, with its hazy, golden amber hue and strong tropical flavors, will brighten up taste buds and remind everyone in the Pacific Northwest to embrace the sunshine, even on the cloudy days to come. Blazing Bright will be available in 6-pack, 12 oz. cans at local grocers throughout the Pacific Northwest, and in draft at local bars in the region and the Pyramid Alehouse in Seattle.
Featuring a tropical mix of mango, pineapple and stone fruit, Blazing Bight is easy-drinking and refreshing with a slight lingering bitterness. Pale Ale Malts, Wheat Malt, Flaked Wheat and Flaked Barley malts are combined with Nugget and Cascade Hops to craft this 6.5% ABV juicy brew that is sure to satisfy craft beer aficionados and anyone enjoying or missing the sunshine.
“Blazing Bright tastes as good as it looks, like a sunrise in a glass,” said Ryan Pappe, head brewer, Pyramid Brewing Co. “We tested this beer for more than a year-and-a-half in our innovation brewery in Seattle and it quickly became a fan favorite. Now that we’ve perfected it, we know our customers will be thrilled with the result. Whether enjoying a backyard barbecue, watching a game or getting out on the trail, Blazing Bright is perfect for everyone who wants to enjoy the adventures to come and embrace the sunrise.”
As part of its Brews That Do initiative to fight hunger in the Pacific Northwest, Pyramid will donate a portion of proceeds from sales of Blazing Bright – whether sold in cans at retail or at the Pyramid Alehouse in Seattle’s SoDo district – to Oregon Food Bank and Food Lifeline of Western Washington. Through September, Brews That Do has generated more than $150,000 for these incredible organizations.
