Washington Wild is teaming up with one of our local Lucky Envelope Brewing to celebrate the release of Public Lands Pilsner. This beer was created with a mission to help spread the word about the value and the importance of protecting the lands that surround our water sources. The link between healthy water sources and great beer is inextricable.
Washington Wild is a nonprofit organization that protects wild lands and rivers in Washington state through advocacy, education, and civic engagement. Within Washington Wild, the Washington Brewshed Alliance works with 70 brewing industry partners across the state to advance its mission of protecting the water sources that are essential for the production of great beer.
CURRENT SEASONAL BEER OFFERINGS
Beer: Peach Barrel-Aged Coolship Sour Ale (6.0% ABV)
Availability: Currently Available On Draft
Description: A blend of reserve Coolship Blonde Sour Ale barrels were combined with 60lbs per barrel of peach puree to create a puckeringly tart sour with subtle notes of Brettanomyces funk and flowery undertones of peach peel. Our spontaneous fermentation coolship program began in 2018 in front of Lucky Envelope Brewing. This process involves cooling beers in open air and allowing them to be inoculated with truly local microflora and fauna.
