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!
