Hopworks Galactic Imperial Red Release Party


Hopworks is releasing Galactic Imperial Red Ale on June 1.  The release party will be held at Ground Kontrol in NW Portland and is open to the public. Here are the details:


Hopworks Galactic Imperial Red Release Party
Ground Kontrol
511 NW Couch St.
Portland, OR 97209
Wednesday, June 1 from 7 – 9 p.m.

$6 for a pour of Galactic and you keep the glass. $5 Galactic 12 oz. pours and $4 Lager pints

Musical entertainment provided by DJs Ben “The Doctor” Love and Matt “The Speckler” Speckenbach

Galactic Imperial Red Ale - 9.5% ABV  100+ IBU
Robust caramel malt flavors battle NW Centennial and Cascade hops for interstellar supremacy. Throw down your quarters before it’s game over.


This is the first time Galactic Imperial Red is being released in 22 oz. bottles.  I haven't tasted Galactic, but I recently profiled Rise-Up Red.  Both have similar hop profiles (Rise-Up features Magnum hops in addition Centennial and Cascade), but Galactic launches the ABV and IBU counts into a higher orbit.  So head over to Ground Kontrol, play a few games of Space Invaders, and get a taste of this beer!

Have you tried Galactic Imperial Red Ale?
