Not long ago, Bob and Patrick decided to head east to Spokane, where they brewed a batch of beer with No-Li Brewhouse. I’m talking about Bob Brenlin, the owner of three legendary Seattle pubs (Latona Pub, Hopvine Pub and Fiddler’s Inn) and Patrick Wilson, the General Manager at Latona Pub. The result is the newest beer in No-Li Brewhouse’s No Boundaries series: Re-Fresh Tart Pale Ale.
Latona Pub will tap into a keg of the new brew next Monday, July 27th when it hosts a brewers night event with No-Li Brewhouse. Preceding the brewers night event, there will be a special brewer’s dinner in the loft. Space is limited for the beer dinner, so contact Latona Pub sooner than later.
The folks at No-Li Brewhouse say they were honored to work on this beer with Bob, one of the pioneers of the Seattle craft beer scene. When he opened Latona Pub back in 1987, it was one of the very first bars in Seattle to focus exclusively on local, craft beer.
“Working with Bob was a great pleasure,” said No-Li Head Brewer, Carey Fristoe. “The wealth of knowledge he possesses is great. The opportunity to collaborate with him opened the door to brew an interesting and memorable beer. It’s light, fruity and refreshingly tart. I think he’ll be proud to share this with his pub patrons.”
About the Beer
Tropical fruit and cherry hop aromas dance lightly over a sessionable pale base. Lactic Acid produced during a kettle sour gives a pleasant, sour sensation. Wheat and rye provide a smooth, spicy character to balance the big fruit aroma of Mosaic, El Dorado, and Amarillo hops. Dry hopping with Mosaic and El Dorado accentuate the tropical and cherry hop aromas and flavors. At 4.5% ABV, this light, tart, fruity beer is a real thirst quencher!
