Multiplayer Guild Collab IPA – Brewery Participation Info
Release Date: June 19th (Father’s Day Weekend)
Registration deadline – April 28, 2021
In the spirit of the WA brewing community, brewers from across the state come together to produce Multiplayer Guild Collab, an IPA benefiting the WA Brewers Guild. This IPA is a reflection of a connected and collaborative industry, working together to brew another day and pour another pint. The release date is June 19th (Father’s Day Weekend). This is a great way for the brewery community to celebrate the craft beer industry in our beautiful state!
A special thank you to Crosby Hops for initiating the excitement of organizing this collab brew with their very generous donation of 1,100 lbs of hops (22 lbs hops donated to first 50 registering breweries). Here’s a special note they wanted to share with WA Breweries: “Through generations of hop industry experience, we’ve cultivated longstanding relationships with like-minded independent growers and hop breeders across Oregon, Washington, and Idaho providing discerning brewers access to a diverse selection of the finest hops on Earth. We look to be leaders in collectively celebrating creativity, diversity, and interconnectedness using modern agriculture as global force for good. In the pursuit of a common goal we see an incredible opportunity to support the WA Brewers Guild and have a positive and lasting impact on the Washington beer community.”
