Let’s face it, 2023 has been a dumpster fire. We could fill an entire novel with all the tragic and unfortunate events that have proved to be a major bummer over the past 12 months, but will instead focus on turning the page, moving on and looking forward to a brighter future. New Year’s Eve is an occasion to drink with friends (if you wanna), to dress up in your nicest duds (if you wanna), to laugh your ass off (if you wanna), and to remember all the good things that happened over the past 12 months (yes, there were some). Peaks & Pints will close at 10 p.m. tonight, but you can celebrate New Year’s Eve all day with our in-house flight of boozy IPAs — a flight we’re calling New Year’s Eve Beer Flight: Boozy IPAs. Let’s turn our backs on the little victories and larger defeats of 2023 and look ahead with some hope for the year to come. Cheers!
New Year’s Eve Beer Flight: Boozy IPAs
Collaboration double IPA with Brothers Cascadia Brewing in Vancouver, Washington, E9 Brewing hopped Resolution Delusion with Cryo Pop for sweet aromatics of orange citrus and complementary tropical notes from hot side Galaxy additions and a massive Citra dry hop.
A massive juicy double IPA brewed for Structures Brewing’s eighth anniversary with Great Notion. It’s double dry hopped with Citra, Mosaic, and experimental hop HBC 630 for a medium soft bodied tropical juice box with a balanced finish.
Kiss 2023 goodbye and welcome in 2024 with Block 15 Brewing‘s Hoppy New Year’s bang of Northwest grown hops, a crisp body orchestrated by a dance of specialty malts, and a bubbly finish.
Avery Brewing’s The Maharaja is derived from the sanskrit words mahat, meaning “great,” and rajan, meaning “king.” Much like its namesake, this imperial IPA is regal, intense, and mighty. With hops and malts as his servants, he rules both with a heavy hand. The Maharaja flaunts his authority over a deranged number of hops (Columbus, Centennial, Chinook, Simcoe, and Amarillo): tangy, vibrant, and pungent along with an insane amount of malted barley — fashioning a dark amber hue and exquisite malt essence.
This single hop hazy triple IPA is basically the grain bill and hopping schedule as The Veil Brewing’s We Ded Mon triple hazy IPA but replaced Citra with Mosaic hops for a boozy first sip followed by all the juiciness and mild, sweet earthy dankness.
