ISSAQUAH, WA., March 6, 2009 – Issaquah Brewery has launched White Frog Ale in Washington stores, restaurants and bars.
White Frog is a hand-crafted ale created by Issaquah brewer Dave Hutchinson using 13 ingredients: Sterling Hops, Pilsen, Wheat, Flaked Oats, Flaked Rye Malts, Coriander, Sweet Orange Peel, Chamomile, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Free-Range Coastal Water and Belgian Witbier Yeast. White Frogs brewing specifications are as follows: 12.9° Plato, 13 IBUs, 4.3°L, 82 AA.
White Frog Ale has received Medals from the North American Beer Awards and the World Beer Championships. World Beer Championship judges describe the beer as “Slightly hazy amber color. Sweet potato, peach pie crust and baking spice aromas follow through on a buoyant, frothy entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium with zesty accents of coriander and cinnamon bark. Finishes spicy toffee, shredded wheat, and honeyed orange fade.”
Issaquah Brewery has appointed K & L Distributing of Seattle and Olympic Eagle Distributing of Tacoma to distribute White Frog Ale in Washington. White Frog Ale will be available in 22oz serigraphed bottles and on draft.
