Hopworks Abominable Winter Ale

Hopworks Abominable Winter Ale

Posted in BEER, DRINK By

While the word abominable generally means really really bad, we’re pretty sure Hopworks is going for an allusion to the scary Yeti snow monster. They must be, because the beer itself is made from an organic Northwest hop medley and organic Munich malt — two things that make beer really really good. This seasonal offering is a 7.3% ABV ale with a complex, spicy/citrusy hoppiness and a malty-sweet backbone.

The maker of this snow beast is Portland, Oregon-based Hopworks, who happen to be the first Certified B Corporation brewery in the Pacific Northwest (that’s for companies that meet/exceed social/environmental/accountability standards). You can find their beers throughout the PNW or enjoy a pint with food at one of three brew-pub locations. Learn more at Hopworks Urban Brewery.
