Flagstaff, Az. — Lumberyard Brewing Company is proud to release its first can in their Sawtooth Series – High Water Imperial IPA. This Imperial IPA is all about the hops! Brewed as an exaggerated version of Lumberyard Brewing Company’s Flagstaff IPA, this beer has a higher hop bitterness that is counter balanced by the additional malts, giving it a big, yet drinkable flavor at 8.5% ABV and 100 IBU.
Lumberyard Brewing Company’s Sawtooth Series was created to highlight their award winning high alcohol beers, and their connection to Flagstaff. The can is designed to represent Flagstaff, with the iconic San Francisco Peaks prominently shown covered in snow, and the saw tooth cutout to represent the Flagstaff’s historic Lumber Era.
This series joins Lumberyard’s existing can offerings: Flagstaff IPA, Railhead Red, Knotty Pine Pale and Diamond Down Lager. The next can in the Sawtooth Series will be Lumberyard Brewing Company’s award winning Big Rapid Imperial Red set to release later this summer.
Lumberyard Brewing Company opened in May 2010 in historic Downtown Flagstaff. Owners, Winnie and Evan Hanseth rehabilitated on of the last remaining buildings of Flagstaff’s lumber era to recreate the community hub that it once was. The building has given them a unique space for packaging their award winning ales and lagers. The couple also owns Beaver Street Brewery that is located a block away from Lumberyard Brewing Company and has been open since March 1994.
