We started with a discussion of fermenting beer on grapes. This lead to brewing a dry IPA, dry hopped with Amarillo, that would complement a modest addition of Gewürztraminer grapes. This seemed like a grape match for old buddies at Best of Hands brewery in West Seattle, who worked with brewer Aaron for years slinging beer at The Beer Junction, also in West Seattle. Seeing how far we could go re-defining what specialty ingredients could go into an IPA with them is exciting for our future collaborative relationship. This beer was brewed completely Salmon safe, including the grapes, malts from Mainstem Malt, and hops from Crosby Farms, to focus one of our goals of sustainable, non-invasive ingredient processing for beer production. And of using quality ingredients and breweing with purpose, rather than a price race to the bottom.
