Goodbye 2020 IPA – 5 local breweries collab on a beer for the service industry

goodbye 2020 IPA collaboration team


Five breweries from around the Greater Seattle Area teamed up to create one beer: Goodbye 2020 IPA, a final beer of the year. The collaboration team included Hellbent Brewing, Burke-Gilman Brewing, Future Primitive Brewing, Lazy Boy Brewing, and Postdoc Brewing.

The beer’s mission is to help support and thank people in the service industry. The beer releases today, December 22nd, and will be available at the collaborating breweries as well as a few other locations listed below. Each brewery will offer a special deal on the beer for folks working in the service industry: $6 per growler. The deal runs through December 24th, Christmas Eve.

The beer is a way for the breweries to say “thank you” to bartenders, servers, chefs, cooks, back-of-house, and front-of-house restaurant and bar workers who’ve been so brutally impacted by the ravages of the pandemic-related shutdowns.

“Hellbent’s Head Brewer/Owner Brian got an idea to help some local restaurants and bars,” said the release announcement. “He wanted to make a great beer and sell it for a really low price so that the accounts could possibly get maximum revenue for a pint to sit outside with, or even a growler to go. By selling this beer at such a low cost, hopefully, it will help some struggling restaurants and bars during these difficult times.”

“Brian mentioned his idea to a few of his fellow colleagues, and they liked the idea and wanted to be a part of it : a collaboration was born. After many, many emails they collectively came up with a recipe that would be the brainchild of not just Hellbent’s, but of all the brewers/breweries involved. The outcome is this great IPA made by 5 great local breweries that will be poured at not only these establishments (the breweries), but at some select bars and restaurants as well.”

“Calling all bartenders, bartenderesses, servers, cooks, chefs, back of the house & front of the house employees – here’s a great Christmas gift for you: all participating breweries will be heavily discounting the Goodbye 2020 IPA at $6 a growlers for the service industry. (Honor system) when the beer releases on Tuesday (12/22) ’til Christmas Eve (12/24). On behalf of all breweries on this project, (Hellbent, Burke-Gillman, Postdoc, Lazy Boy and Future Primitive) we would like to wish our resilient group of service industry individuals a Happy Holidays!!!”

Here is the official description:

Goodbye 2020 IPA

To finish off this Dumpster Fire of the year 2020, we decided to go out in style, and have our friends from Burke-Gilman Brewing, Future Primitive , Lazy Boy, and Postdoc help us out with this collaboration IPA. In true 2020 fashion, some brewers attended in person, and some via computer, but we were all dedicated to making a great IPA to help out local bars, restaurants, and breweries that have been hit hard by the pandemic shutdowns. When you get five breweries together to make an IPA, it’s gonna have some hops in it, and double dry-hopping seems like a given. Dry-hopped with Simcoe, Citra, and Ekuanot…then dry-hopped AGAIN with Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra, and Chinook, Dumpster Fire blends bright citrus rind, blueberries, and pine seamlessly; bitter, but balanced. The PNW craft community knows how to come together in tough times, and lend a hand. Flame on, 2020!!!
