Bend, OR — Boneyard Beer collaborates with Steel Toe Brewing to release Sticker Fight Double IPA, Oregon-style.
Back in 2014 a war was waged in Denver, Colorado over burritos and Mexican lagers between two hop-forward breweries: one from Minnesota, the other from Oregon. The Sticker Fight had begun. The legend was epic and the trail of stickers storied. To commemorate the madness, Randin King (brewer at Boneyard and formerly of Steel Toe) developed a tropical fruity Double IPA for the thirsty folks of Minnesota. The concoction was supremely satisfying and utterly demanded by fans.
Three years later, Boneyard and Steel Toe joined forces, put their adhesive weapons down, and brewed an Oregon-inspired version for the West Coast. The body is crisp, with just enough sweetness to counter the onslaught of aromatic and flavorful hops. Sticker Fight Double IPA is 8.5% ABV and 80 IBUs and will only be available on draft for a limited time starting April 3, 2017.
About Boneyard Beer
In 2010, Boneyard Beer was started in an old auto shop tucked away in the backstreets of Bend, Oregon’s historical district. Without any outside investors or major bank loans, Boneyard’s inception was unconventional to say the least. After decades in the brewing industry, owner Tony Lawrence built up a “boneyard” of old equipment he collected from 13 different breweries around the country. Alongside co-founders, Clay and Melodee Storey, this second-hand brewing equipment was pieced together to brew the first batch of Boneyard Beer in May 2010. Boneyard currently distributes draft beer in Pacific Northwest and other select areas.
