It’s hard to believe Seattle has lived without an NBA team for more than a dozen years. For folks of a certain age, who’ve actually lived here for a while, the wound still feels fresh. It still seems weird that we don’t have the Sonics.
Gig Harbor Brewing just released a seasonal beer that gives a nod to Seattle’s proud NBA past and reminds us that there is real hope that we’ll once again have a team to call our own. Here’s the release notice.
Beer Release: Supersonic Doppelbock from Gig Harbor Brewing
Gig Harbor, Wash. — Around this time every year, Gig Harbor Brewing produces a new Lager as one of their seasonal brews. This year their Supersonic Doppelbock is a malt forward dark lager with notes of dried fruit, caramel and toasted grain. Its lightly-hopped flavor and balanced sweetness, finishes light and clean. Lagered for a minimum of eight weeks, this deliciously smooth and easy-to-drink double lager comes in with an ABV of 6.8%.
Created by Gig Harbor Brewing’s head brewer Mike O’Hara, the single German hop Hallertauer — and German yeast and malt — form the base for this classic Germanic liquid bread.
Any meat and potato dishes — as well as a well-aged cheese and prosciutto platter — pair perfectly with this rich tasting Munich-inspired beer.
Supersonic Doppelbock is also a shout out to NBA fans everywhere to help promote the return of the Seattle Supersonics to the Puget Sound area. “Bring ’em back!” is hopefully a message the NBA expansion committee will hear in the next few months as they make their forthcoming expansions plans. Go Sonics!
