To mark the occasion and its successful growth throughout the Pacific Northwest market, Two Beers Brewing will release a special limited edition Anniversary Double IPA. Brewed with 10 Pacific Northwest hops, this unique beer as been aged on 320-pounds of organic peaches and plums, then dry-hopped with Simcoe and Columbus hops.
“Never in a million years would I have guessed we’d grow so fast,” said Joel VandenBrink, founder and head brewer at Two Beers Brewing Co. “When I started Two Beers Brewing five years ago, it was just me in a 170-square-foot ActivSpace in Fremont. Now, we’re bursting at the seams of our 4,800-square-foot brewery and tasting room in SoDo. I can’t thank our fans, friends and the craft beer industry enough for all the support they’ve given us over the years. We’ve brewed this beer for them. It has been, and will continue to be, an awesome journey.”
Two Beers Brewing’s Anniversary Double IPA features 105 IBUs and a 8.8 percent ABV. With a plum-citrus nose and a hoppy mid-palette (thanks to the 105 IBUs), this delicious beer offers hints of peach and grass that linger on the tongue.
