Boundary Bay Brewery at Cask Beer Festival This Weekend
Boundary Bay Brewery is going to be at the Washington Cask Beer Festival this Saturday…and we’re bring our Herbert Ale with us!
The Washington Cask Beer Festival has become a major highlight of the Pacific Northwest beer festival scene. The event features over 60 handcrafted cask-conditioned beers from the region’s most innovative microbreweries. This festival requires brewers to naturally condition the beer in a firkin or other vessels without artificially introducing CO2. Poured by gravity the result is smooth ale with a thick dense head that brings out full flavor. Not only do we have some great cask-conditioned ales to take down to the festival, but we’ve also been asked to brew one of the ten Herbert’s that will be featured the same weekend.
The Herbert’s is a special beer that’s normally brewed collaboratively by a group of Washington brewers for the Cask Festival in honor of Bert Grant, a Northwest beer icon. Boundary Bay Brewery is one of the lucky breweries creating one of the ten special brews this year. Our Herbert Legendary Ale is a strong (7.7% ABV), hoppy American Amber featuring Simcoe, Centennial, Amarillo and Cascade hops with 2-Row, Crystal and Chocolate malts.
At the Washington Cask Beer Festival the brewers stay true to the traditional brewing and dispensing method of “cask-conditioned beer” while experimenting with their creativity to come up with the most innovative, distinctive beer. If you are a true beer lover, this is a festival not to be missed. See you there!
