E-Malt.com News article: USA, WA: Two Beers Brewing celebrates six years in business, rebrands
On Saturday, November 2, Two Beers Brewing celebrates six exciting years in business. To mark the occasion, Two Beers Brewing will be hosting its biggest celebration yet with the unveiling of a brand new look for its growing brewery, including a new logo, new cans and new bottle labels for its entire lineup. In addition, two new beers will be released – a Sixth Anniversary IPL (a hoppy lager) and Overhang Bourbon Aged Imperial Porter, the final beer in Two Beers Brewing’s Alta Series, as reported by Brewbound on October 21.
“When I started Two Beers Brewing and developed our brand, I was brewing out of 170-square-feet in Fremont, producing only four kegs a week,” said Joel VandenBrink, founder and head brewer at Two Beers Brewing Company. “Six years later, you can find us in six states and four countries, with draft and package products in more than 1,000 accounts. We’ve updated our look to make it even easier for consumers to find our beer and to really show our support for the Pacific Northwest.”
Two Beers Brewing’s new look – created in conjunction with Capitol Hill-based design firm DEI Creative – reflects the brewery’s laid-back personality and love for the Pacific Northwest. Featuring easy-to-spot packaging and bright colors identifying each of Two Beers Brewing’s unique beers, each label includes detailed tasting notes, style information and the new Two Beers Brewing logo. In addition, a brand new website makes it easy to learn more about the brewery, the beer and more.
A yearly tradition, Two Beers Brewing is also offering a special sixth anniversary beer in both 22-ounce bottles ($6) and on draft. The Sixth Anniversary IPL (India Pale Lager) is a hoppy lager featuring delightful aromas of grapefruit and orange. Coming in at 6 ABV and 50 IBUs, this beer will be available for a limited time at the brewery and select stores throughout Seattle.
November 2 will also mark the release of the final beer in Two Beers Brewing’s coveted Alta Series. Overhang Bourbon Imperial Porter – available in 22-ounce wax-dipped, screen printed bottles ($14 each) – is a uniquely boozy beer perfect for fall, aged in bourbon barrels for six months with cocoa, cinnamon and a touch of cloves. The result is a roasted caramel and molasses nose with a rich brown head. Brewed with Cascade hops, this limited edition beer offers a 12.9 ABV and 60 IBUs, with only 1,000 bottles available.
