Seattle fans of Boundary Bay Brewery can find our beer at a number of bars, bottle shops and the like in the King and Pierce counties. Our IPA that you’ve all come to know and love so well is a perennial favorite at many of our accounts. The Fiddler rotates IPA’s through their selection, and when the Boundary Bay IPA comes up, they sell out a whole keg in one day. Seriously! So, the people at the Fiddler wanted us to brew them a special IPA that they could call the Boundary Bay Brewery One Day IPA. And, so of course, we did!
Our One Day IPA is a lighter bodied IPA that has a slightly lower alcohol content and lighter mouth feel. We brewed it with Columbus, Amarillo and German Tradition hops and rounded it out with 2-Row, Crystal and Vienna malts. In contrast, our regular IPA uses Centennial, Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascade and Crystal hops with Pale 2-Row, Crystal, Carastan and Vienna malts.
Right now, you can get your hands on this special brew in Seattle at the Hopvine Pub, the Latona Pub and the Fiddler’s Inn. You can also try it at the Highland Games this weekend at Hovander Park here in Ferndale. As the summer progresses, we might have the One Day IPA available here at the brewery, at other festivals and/or at more of our accounts. We’ll definitely keep you posted! In the meantime, let us know what you think of our One Day IPA when you get a taste…especially a side by side comparison with our regular IPA. We’d love to hear your feedback. Cheers!
