As far as I know, Top Rung Brewing of Lacey, Washington is the state’s only brewery owned and operated by firefighters. The beers are themed after firefighting-related equipment, processes and jargon. That’s pretty cool, if you ask me.
The brewery just announced the upcoming release of a new IPA called Digging Line. As you might guess, the name is an homage to the hardworking men and women who fight wildland fires. Sadly, it looks like those brave firefighters will be busy again this summer. Here is the info straight from the brewery:
On June 18th we will release our new seasonal IPA, Digging Line. The long days of summer are arriving and so do the aromas and flavors of this awesome summer IPA. Brewed with Pilsner malt and Idaho 7 hops, this beer screams summer! Aromas of apricot and tropical notes followed with a nice crisp malt finish. All the hops of an IPA packaged for the warm days of summer. This beer pays homage to the hard working wildland firefighters out digging fire line to protect lives and property from the devastating effects of Wildland fires.
Digging Line Summer IPA Statistics: ABV: 6.7%, IBU: 50
