HOPWORKS URBAN BREWERY LAUNCHES ITS WIN-WIN PARTNERSHIP BEER SERIES, HIGHLIGHTING INGREDIENTS FROM SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS PARTNERS 

Walla Walla Wheatwine Uses 100% Salmon-Safe Ingredients; It is the First of 12 Original HUB Beers in 2018 to Feature Ingredients from Eco-Champion Businesses

Portland, Ore., January 16, 2018 — Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB), the first Certified B Corporation brewery in the Northwest and member of 1% for the Planet, today announces the new Win-Win Partnership Series of beers. The first in the series is Walla Walla Wheatwine, available now on draft and in 22-ounce bomber bottles, until it runs out at all HUB pubs.

The Win-Win Series is born from the goal to experiment with flavors while highlighting Hopworks’ strong relationships formed over the last decade with businesses focused on sustainability. Each beer in the series features ingredients from businesses that share HUB’s commitment to protecting the environment. Craft beer fans and eco stewards can take part in this win-win scenario by picking up a new limited-edition partner beer each month throughout 2018.

The partner business for Walla Walla Wheatwine is the nation’s first supplier of Salmon-Safe certified malt -- Mainstem Malt in Walla Walla, Washington. Brewed with 100% Salmon-Safe ingredients including wheat and barley from Mainstem, Mt. Hood and Crystal hops, and HUB’s fruity yeast strain, this full-bodied beer can be enjoyed now or cellar aged. At 10% ABV, this complex wheatwine-style ale has a smooth mouthfeel and rich, bready flavor.

Upcoming Win-Win beers will also feature tasty flavor profiles from sustainably sourced ingredients. Morning Vibes Imperial Latte Stout will be released on February 1. It features organic coffee from B Corp™ coffee roasters, Nossa Familia Coffee.

“It has always been our goal to make world-class beer, as sustainably as possible,” said HUB Brewmaster and Founder, Christian Ettinger. “The new Win-Win partnership helps us shine a spotlight on special ingredients and great companies who want to make a positive impact on the planet. As someone who spends time in the great outdoors where salmon depend on clean water and a healthy ecosystem to thrive, Walla Walla Wheatwine holds special meaning. It is great to make great beer and do good at the same time.”

“Mainstem Malt supports supply chain water conservation and rural development efforts with its high-quality, single-origin malt. It's an honor to see our products flow so beautifully into this Walla Walla Wheatwine," said Phil Neumann, Mainstem founder. "The dry-farmed grain bill boasts Walla Walla wheat from H.T. Rea Farms and Athena barley from Johns Ranch. When folks drink this beer, they support two family farms using Salmon-Safe water conservation practices for landscape-scale change. Cheers to HUB and the next 11 eco-champions!"

“We are thrilled that Hopworks is kicking off the Win-Win Series with this special cellar-worthy Salmon-Safe beer. Walla Walla Wheatwine is the first packaged beer brewed with 100% Salmon-Safe ingredients,” said Dan Kent, Salmon-Safe Co-Founder and Executive Director. “What makes it even more special is it is brewed in Portland, the first city in the world to achieve the third-party designation for its systematic approach to improving water quality and restoring salmon habitat.”

New Belgium Brewing’s Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA 
Brightens New Year with Unfiltered Wave of Hoppiness
Year-round release is the brewery’s way of saying cheers to 2018

Fort Collins, Colo. – New Belgium Brewing is kicking off the new year with a new addition to the Voodoo Ranger family, Juicy Haze IPA. This medium bodied, unfiltered IPA is packed with tropical aromas and big citrus flavors from a delicious blend of Citra hops combined with Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe and Nugget. 

“It’s no secret that hazy IPAs are incredibly popular right now and New Belgium is the perfect brewery to roll this out on a national scale without compromising quality,” said New Belgium Brewer, Cody Reif. “With more than 10 years brewing unfiltered beers and the ongoing success of our hoppy portfolio, Juicy Haze continues our tradition of pushing boundaries while making creative and innovative beers.”

Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA pours pale orange with an opaque haze and bright white head. Vibrant lemon, orange, guava and pineapple notes are balanced with a light grassy and caramel-like malt aroma giving the beer a sweet start that transitions into a smooth, bitter flavor. The soft, velvety mouthfeel wraps up with a pleasantly clean finish. 

This is the fourth year-round member of the Voodoo Ranger family, which New Belgium launched last year. The Voodoo Ranger family of beers also features Voodoo Ranger IPA, Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA and Voodoo Ranger 8 Hop Pale Ale. Three additional special releases are slated for 2018.
