Welcome to Pride Month! Breweries across the Northwest are beginning to release their pride-focused beers. We’ll feature them here on the blog as we see them. First up, an IPA and a cider from Double Mountain Brewery and Cidery. Here’s the official announcement.
Double Mountain’s Basic Rights IPA
Continuing support of LGBTQ+ rights, Double Mountain Brewery and Cidery is proud to release Basic Rights IPA and Pride Cider. Joining forces with local artist and pub favorite, Mark Nilsson, we created a greatly balanced IPA that would feature Mark’s talents and utilize a portion of the profits for donation and partnership with Basic Rights Oregon.
Additionally, we created a delicious Dry Cider available for draft. Basic Rights Oregon is celebrating 25 years of advocating to ensure that all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Oregonians experience equality by building a broad and inclusive, politically powerful movement, shifting public opinion, and achieving policy victories on issues throughout Oregon for youth, racial and LGBTQ justice.
Basic Rights IPA is available in refillable 500ml bottles and on draft along with Pride Cider at our Hood River Taproom, SE Portland Taproom in the Woodstock neighborhood, and at fine establishments throughout the Northwest.
A portion of the profits benefit Basic Rights Oregon. Original art by Hood River Artist, Mark Nilsson.
“It was a kick in the pants working with Mark, making a great beer, and celebrating that beer with a new painting for the Taproom. Partnering with Basic Rights Oregon helping fund their advocacy and justice campaigns is just the right thing to do.” – Matt Swihart, Brewmaster at Double Mountain Brewery.
Basic Rights IPA 6.5% ABV 58 BU
A colorful array of English Malts our favorite local hops. Celebrating the rich diversity of all Oregonians, this IPA will be featured at Pride events throughout the Northwest.
