Breweries across the state are participating in one, big collaborative beer project
The Washington Brewers Guild, Crosby Hops, Blind Tiger Design, and other participants invite Washington breweries to hop aboard the Multiplayer Guild Collab IPA project.
It’s been a rough year for Washington’s breweries and this program will showcase a spirit of creativity and promote a sense of unity, community, and collaboration. Brewed by individual breweries across the state, the beer is scheduled for release on June 19th (Father’s Day weekend). Brewers need to register by April 28th.
Over the course of the past 13 months, the Washington Brewers Guild worked for the benefit of all breweries in the state. It’s what they do, pandemic or not. Now there’s a fun opportunity for Washington breweries to return the favor and do something that benefits the Guild. Did I mention free hops?
WHO’S ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE
All current Washington Brewers Guild brewery members are eligible to participate in this collaborative event. This includes all members, regardless of brewery size.
Participants will receive the guideline base recipe with directions to create an IPA between 6 and 7 percent ABV. Each brewery is encouraged to put its own spin on the base recipe. No size limit, so breweries can produce as little as 3 barrels or as many barrels as they want.
Crosby Hops, which initiated the idea and the excitement, will very generous donate 1,100 lbs of hops — 22 lbs of hops to each of the first 50 breweries that register.
The artwork, which will be used for all of the beers, was designed by the good folks at Blind Tiger Design.
There are a number of other partners and participants involved. Visit the official website for more details and to get involved.
