Three Creeks 5th Anniversary Imperial IPA

I posted last week about Three Creeks Brewing over in Sisters turning 5 this weekend, with a party tomorrow that includes birthday cake and the launch of their 5th Anniversary Imperial IPA. I still don’t know what the cake will be, but here’s a description of the beer:

Brewed to honor Three Creeks’ 5th Anniversary this classic Northwest Imperial IPA features 5 hop varieties (Amarillo, Chinook, Crystal, Columbus, Bravo) and 5 lbs of hops per barrel.  Built around a base of Belgian Pale malt and 4 specialty malts, this Imperial IPA weighs in at 7.8% ABV to commemorate the date our first batch of beer was brewed (July 8, 2008).  Dark orange in color with amazing balance,  the 5th Anniversary Imperial IPA showcases a full gamut of hop flavors from citrus and fruit to resin and pine.

In addition to 7.8% abv it’s a whopping 99 IBUs. They will also be tapping a firkin of their new seasonal, Backpacker Brown.

It’s going to be a good weekend for Three Creeks: don’t miss out!
