Georgetown Brewing Releases First IPA at Beveridge Place Pub & Bob’s Brown Ale on the Way
Aptly named “Lucille IPA” after the cross street upon which Georgetown Brewery sits, the beer will be the first (we think) true IPA that Georgetown has brewed in its short past. Other limited release hoppy ales such as SuperChopp have showcased what these guys can do with hops. There is reason for excitement.
Now, we are unsure whether the IPA will become a regular thing – but we can dream eh? In the past, Georgetown has brewed special beers for special events, not keeping them around for the regular rotation (see Lisa’s Chocolate Stout – mmm good).
Our hope is that the beer tests out well and Georgetown decides to carry it at least seasonally. Georgetown has one of the best local followings with an abundance of local accounts at your favorite watering hole. We would love to see their IPA on tap all the time!
Of course, Georgetown is famously known for its Manny’s Pale Ale, but also showcases an amazing Roger’s Pilsner and 9 Lb Porter. The brewery does not yet bottle beer (and who knows – maybe they wont), but you can always find their beer at the brewery in growlers and kegs, or at a multitude of grog spots across Washington state.
The event tomorrow (April 15, 2010) is slated to begin at 6:00 PM.
Bob’s Brown Ale Coming Soon…..
Also! Please remember that Georgetown will release Bob’s Brown Ale on May 14, 2010. All the proceeds of Bob’s Brown Ale go to the Ronald McDonald House. Last year the brewery raised close to $50,000! From their website:
Bob’s is a special beer brewed in honor of our friend, Bob Hirsch, who fought cancer valiantly for many years. He lived his final days to the fullest and he is an inspiration to all of us. Bob’s Brown Ale will be released every May 14th (Bob’s birthday). 100% of our proceeds from Bob’s will be donated in honor of Charles “Bob” Hirsch to the Seattle Ronald McDonald House to provide a “home-away-from-home” for Children’s Hospital patients and families.
Make sure to get out for both of the events if your calendar and wallet agree. We hope to see you there.
