BREWHALL BEER CO. (CANADA) & ROGUE BREWING (USA) COLLABORATE TO LAUNCH REVOLUTIONARY CROSS-BORDER BEER: HAZY BORDERS DOUBLE IPA
For Immediate Release
December 6, 2018 (Vancouver, BC) – October 24th marked a special day for BREWHALL Beer Co. In addition to brewing its twentieth craft beer collaboration, it was the first time BREWHALL collaborated with a brewery outside of Canada – Rogue Ales & Spirits from Oregon. It was also the first time Rogue had brewed a collaboration with a Canadian brewery.
“One of the things that excites me the most about doing this Rogue collaboration is that we are a relatively young industry,” says Daniel Frankel, BREWHALL’s Founder & CEO. “In Portland, craft beer has been around a lot longer and we have so much to learn from Rogue and from our partners south of the border. We’re excited to see how we can stretch ourselves, how we can grow, and how we can explore and connect with new friends.”
Rogue, founded in Oregon in 1988 as one of America’s first microbreweries, is the only farmer-brewer-distiller-cooper in the United States. Rogue’s Innovation Brewer, Danny Connors, along with a small team from the brewery, travelled to Vancouver and spent the day brewing a Double IPA with BREWHALL. The beer was named Hazy Borders to represent the style as well as the power of ‘breaking down the borders of the north and south’ to bring people together and build connections.
Hazy Borders is a northeast style IPA that was double dry-hopped with Sabro, Bru-1 and Topaz hops, giving it a massive aroma of pineapple, coconut and mango. This juicy aroma is backed by a full-bodied malt profile. The beer comes in at 8% ABV and 60 IBU. The beer launches on Thursday, December 6th and will be available at BREWHALL until it runs out so gather your friends and come try Hazy Borders together! Watch the brew day video.
