A Little History With Your Beer?

Just snagged this from Hopworks…a special pre-release bottling of Pig War NW Ale made with estate-grown hops from San Juan Island. Only one case of these bottles will be available at both locations each day this weekend (10/14-16), so get yours while you can!

From the bottle:

"Our Estate NW Style Ale uses both Willamette and Cascade hops grown exclusively for Hopworks on San Juan Island. These hops impart a fresh, crisp and stunning fruitiness, coupled perfectly with aromatic floral herbaceousness. A rich malt body and warming finish are followed by a subtle, balancing hop bitterness.

"The name Pig War commemorates the confrontation in 1859 between American and British authorities over San Juan Island."
