Airways Brewing to Release Loud Lady Imperial IPA

KENT, Wash. — Say hello to Loud Lady Imperial IPAÔäó, the second release of this limited-edition beer from the Kent-based brewery’s line of delicious handcrafted beers. With a special run just in time for Spring, this delicious, Northwest-style IPA is released only twice a year in small batches.

“We’re happy to welcome the Loud Lady back for its annual January draught release,” said Alex Dittmar, owner and head brewer at Airways Brewing Company. “We last released this beer in June of 2013, and it received an overwhelmingly positive response. So much so, that we constantly get asked when it’s coming back. While this time it’s draught only, it’ll be back in bottles again this summer.”

Loud Lady IPA is brewed with more than 52 pounds of Cascade, Chinook, Centennial, and Simcoe hops added to each 10-barrel batch. Deep gold in color with a strong hop flavor and aroma, Loud Lady is a big beer, but also an easy-drinking one.

Beginning Tuesday, January 21, Loud Lady Imperial IPA will be available on draught at both the Airways Brewing Tap Room in the Kent industrial area and the Airways Beer & Bistro in Downtown Kent. The beer will also be available on draught around the Puget Sound area starting January 21.

The Loud Lady Imperial IPA will be followed by the introduction of the Very Loud LadyÔäó Triple IPA. Very Loud Lady will be released at both Airways locations on Monday, February 17th and was brewed as part of the Washington Hop Mob Triple IPA Roadshow, with event locations and dates as follows:

  • Monday, February 17 at Brouwer’s Café (Seattle)
  • Thursday, February 20 at Pike Pub and Brewery (Seattle)
  • Wednesday, February 26 at Special Brews (Lynnwood)
  • Wednesday, March 5 at Pint Defiance (Tacoma)
  • Thursday, March 13 at Naked City Brewery and Taphouse (Seattle)

In addition to Loud Lady IPA on draught, craft beer enthusiasts can pick up the brewery’s flagship Sky Hag IPA and Chocolate Stout in 22-ounce bottles. Pre Flight Pilsner and Maylani’s Coconut Stout are available in 16-oz cans. Pints, tasters and growlers of all of these beers and more can also be found at the Airways Brewing Tap Room or Airways Brewing Beer & Bistro in historic downtown Kent.
