In an alternate reality where Amber Ale reigns supreme, hops are still the hero.
Metamodern PNW Amber is a collaboration between Reuben’s Brews and Georgetown Brewing, the first in a series of ten collaborations released in 2022 to mark Reuben’s Brews’ 10th Anniversary. Manny Chao, co-founder of Georgetown Brewing, is responsible for some of the classic PNW beers that got our co-founder Adam Robbings started in the world of craft beer, especially his eponymous Manny’s Pale Ale. What better place to start this year of collaborations than with the brewery that literally kick-started it all for us. Cheers to great PNW beer!
The pride reunites, stronger than ever before.
Supreme Triumvirate is brewed in collaboration with old friends and long time supporters Brouwer’s Cafe and Bottleworks, and is the second collaboration in Reuben’s Brews’ 10th Anniversary series in 2022. When co-founders Adam and Grace Robbings moved in to the neighborhood one of their criteria for choosing a new home was that it was walking distance from great beer, and Brouwer’s Cafe sealed the deal.
We’ve proudly brewed Triumvirate IPA as the house IPA for Brouwer’s, Bottleworks, and the dearly departed The Burgundian since 2015, and along the way that special beer has been honored with GABF and World Beer Cup Gold. For our 10th Anniversary we’ve brought the empire back together for a new imperial version of this classic west coast IPA.
DREAM TEAM HAZY IPA is a collaboration between Reuben’s Brews, Great Notion (Portland, OR), and Fort George (Astoria, OR.) This dream team first brewed together with the 2017 release of Fort George’s iconic 3-Way, a legendary release all three breweries continue to hear about from our supporters.
Dream Team packs grapefruit, passionfruit, white wine, and stone fruit flavor across a very soft, very light, and pillowy hazy IPA. The brew is engineered to drive up the aromatics at 7.2% ABV. Pilsner malt, plus flaked and malted oats, and flaked rice meet Cryo Simcoe®, Nelson Sauvin™, and Riwaka™ hops alongside Citra Incognito®.
One Small Sip. One Giant Treat...
Stouter Limits Imperial Stout is the fourth release in the Reuben’s Brews 10th Anniversary Collaboration Series, brewed with the great folks at Homebrewers Guild of Seattle Proper. This is the homebrew club where our co-founder Adam Robbings cut his teeth, leading to the formation of our brewery. In fact, a number of our recipes still date back to those heady days of homebrewing. Homebrewing is the epitome of “glass backwards” - brewing unconstrained by production efficiencies - which Adam learned at the club and carried those philosophies forward to this very day at the brewery.
Stouter Limits is a MASSIVE imperial stout brewed with literally tons of malt and a super long boil so it can reach a hefty 12.5% ABV. This beer is thick, heavy, rich, and packs a wallop.
Up The Bridges! American Pale Ale is the fifth release in the Reuben’s Brews 10th Anniversary Collaboration Series, brewed in collaboration with the folks at Ballard FC. Reuben’s Brews is the title sponsor for the inaugural season of our neighborhood’s first ever USL2 soccer team! We are proud to continue supporting our community and providing a gathering spot for our neighborhood to support our own soccer team.
Up The Bridges! is the battle-cry of the new team, in reference to the iconic Ballard Bridge located a few blocks from our Taproom. This American Pale Ale with a special blend of brand-new and tried-and-true hops including HBC 1019 and Cashmere alongside Michigan Chinook and Cascade. Crisp, clean, and hoppy Up The Bridges! Is the perfect beer to enjoy at kickoff of a new soccer season!
The Dog That Doesn’t Bark Bites Hardest...
Barnacles English-style Barleywine is the sixth release in the Reuben’s Brews 10th Anniversary Collaboration Series, brewed with our friend and brewing legend Alan Sprints of Hair of the Dog Brewery. We have a lot to thank Alan for but one of the most memorable occasions was in October 2012. Our brewery had only been open for business for two months and we were planning our very first bourbon-barrel imperial stout (to be released in 2013 as the first BBIS!) We didn’t know where we could get a bourbon barrel, but Alan came to our rescue, giving us two barrels from Hair of the Dog’s stash that Adam picked up in his truck.
It is a great honor to brew with Alan, particularly this style of beer that is special for each of us. If you haven’t heard, Alan is retiring this year and winding down the Hair of the Dog Brewery. We thank Alan for all of his leadership and inspiration in the craft beer world, both here in the Pacific Northwest and truly around the world.
