PORTLAND, Ore. — Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB), the first Certified B Corporation brewery in the Pacific Northwest, today announced the upcoming release of three new IPAs. On March 01, HUB will release Ferocious Citrus IPA, Chill Murray New England-Style IPA, and Love Letter New England-Style IPA at its three pubs.
Ferocious Citrus IPA is HUB’s spring and summer seasonal offering. Brewed with organic hard red spring wheat from Twin Oaks Farm on San Juan Island, Ferocious is hazy and smooth with an upfront burst of organic citrusy hops, and grapefruit juice. Take one sip of this crazy IPA and you’ll be hypnotized. Ferocious replaces Abominable Winter Ale in HUB’s seasonal rotation, and is available on draft and in 12oz 6-pack cans throughout HUB’s distribution network.
Chill Murray is the newest beer in HUB’s rotating Hazy IPA series. Look for notes of idiosyncrasy and unpredictability in this New England-Style IPA. Chill Murray was brewed with Skagit Valley soft wheat, organic flaked barley, organic oats, and buckets full of Eureka, Azacca, organic Citra, and Galaxy hops. On March 01 the beer will be available on draft and in limited 16oz 4-pack cans at HUB’s three pubs. Only 40 cases of cans were produced. Each 4-pack is $14 and will be distributed as follows: 28 cases for the SE Powell brewpub, 4 cases for BikeBar, and 8 cases for the Vancouver brewpub. Crowlers will be available at HUB’s SE Portland and Vancouver brewpubs.
Love Letter NEIPA is the third beer in HUB’s new Win-Win Partnership Series, which highlights ingredients from fellow eco-champion businesses. The beer is HUB’s love letter to Bob’s Red Mill, as it features Bob’s haze-inducing organic oats, organic wheat, and organic spelt for a velvety, fluffy texture. It is dry-hopped with citrusy and fruit-forward Jaryllo, Mosaic, and Denali hops. Check out HUB’s fun tribute video to Bob’s Red Mill here. Love Letter will be available on draft and in limited 22oz bottles at HUB’s three pubs and with limited distribution in Oregon and Washington.
