Peaks & Pints hosts Fort George 2024 3-Way IPA Release Party


Peaks & Pints hosts Fort George 2024 3-Way IPA Release Party

Summer is an exciting time for beer nerds. Regionally, the season is met with the release of Fort George Brewery‘s (Astoria, Ore.) 3-Way IPA. The hoppy beer is an annual collaboration — in its 12th year — with two other West Coast breweries. This year’s brew is joined by Brujos Brewing (Portland, Ore.) and Ghost Town Brewing (Oakland, Calif.).

Join Peaks & Pints for the Official Tacoma 3-Way IPA Release at 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 28. We will have not only 3-Way, but nine other Fort George beers, plus two hazy IPAs from Brujos, on tap. Fort George rep Kyle will be in house sampling and handing out swag from 5-8 p.m.

Fort George’s 3-Way IPA has become a signal to the start of summer. Once a year Fort George extends an invitation to two breweries, chosen for their mastery in the art of IPAs. The goal is to come together, exchange knowledge, forge lasting friendships, and along the way create an IPA that everyone is excited to drink. That collaboration is then brewed, packed into a brilliant new 16-ounce can, and sent out for the pure enjoyment of the Pacific Northwest.

The three breweries start by brainstorming beer sessions in the fall, brewing Beta IPAs, blind tastings, lab tests, aroma analysis, color checks, and long conversations until it’s perfect, and then putting the newly-minted star on stage. The result is like a fine-tuned orchestral composition, or a classic country tune, or a tight power trio. The line-up changes each year, and no two 3-Way IPA collaborations are the same.

See you at Peaks Tuesday with all the swag and such. Cheers!

FORT GEORGE 2024 3-WAY IPA RELEASE PARTY, 5-8 p.m., Tuesday, May 28, Peaks & Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, no cover
