Ally Ale - An Aslan // Northwest Youth Services Partnership

Ally Ale.jpg

In honor of Pride Month, Aslan Brewing Co. and Northwest Youth Services have teamed up to bring you Ally Ale, a Tropical Golden Ale, set to be released in draft and cans on June 2nd during Aslan’s 4 Year Anniversary Party. The partnership aims to benefit the Queer Youth Project, a NWYS program dedicated to supporting and advocating for at-risk and homeless LGBTQ youth. Aslan will donate a portion of sales of the Ally Ale on June 2nd. Through the donation and awareness campaign the Aslan // NWYS partnership will assist the Queer Youth Project in furthering its work in Whatcom County.

“As a society we have made a lot of progress for LGBTQ adults, but queer kids in our own county are still isolated and at risk,” states Page, Queer Youth Project Coordinator. “Knowing that local people care, even people they will never meet, goes a long way toward helping youth imagine a hopeful future. The most important person in any kid’s life is their parent. For many queer youth, their parents are unsafe. But as a community we can surround youth with the love and support they need to imagine a hopeful future.”

Jack Lamb, Aslan CEO also affirms, “It is part of our duty as community members to identify injustices and offer a helping hand to those in need. Despite being located in one of the most progress states in the country, we know that more work needs to be done to support the LGBTQ community in our own town. As allies of the Queer Youth Project, we are proud to use our resources for good and help Northwest Youth Services bolster their impact.”

Through compiling data from reports provided by NWYS and the True Colors Fund, we are able to paint a picture of the issues facing the LGBTQ community and the challenges that lie ahead for the Queer Youth Project.

Page continues, “As a neighbor, coach, aunt, uncle or friend, you can be the one person who brings a queer youth hope. Almost 83% of queer youth in our county feel alone in life. Having Aslan include the Queer Youth Project in their celebration is fun and meaningful reminder to our youth that they are loved and supported by their community.”

Be sure to grab an Ally Ale on June 2nd at Aslan Brewing Co or make a donation at https://www.nwys.org/donate

 

 

NOW ON TAP - Coastal Pils (German Style Pilsner)

Organic Coastal Pils .jpg
Coastal Pils (German Style Pilsner)

4.8% ABV // 40 IBU // 1.046 OG

light body + zesty bitterness + crisp

Brewed in similar fashion to the northern German style pilsner, we named this beer Coastal Pils as a nod to Germany’s coastal region where notable examples exist. Not to be confused with a Bavarian Pilsner, this style has a more pronounced zest and citrus-like bitterness. While not German, we prefer the flavor of Czech Saaz hops, which were used at a rate of 1 lb per barrel to create the distinct hoppy flavor. This lager is fully attenuated, hoppy with a refreshing mineral finish.

HOPS:
Premiant, Saaz
MALT:
Pilsner

6.7% ABV // 53 IBU // 1.060 OG

medium body + dank grapefruit + juicy

This IPA was brewed to exhibit the grandfather of "sexy" hops, Yakima grown Cascade. As the only hop used, massive flavors of dank grapefruit prevail, while finessed flavors of stone fruit and flowers create layers of complexity.

Cascade

NOW ON TAP - Falcon Punch IPA

Falcon Punch - WEB.jpg
Falcon Punch IPA

5.3% ABV // 46 IBU // 1.054 OG

medium body + piney pear + soft

We revived a long forgotten ale strain from Europe to make this IPA. Possibly the first and only time this yeast has been used in the United States, making this beer wholly unique. Hopped abundantly with Jaryllo, the prevalent flavors are a peculiar mix of pear and pine needles that work amazingly well together. However, the mouth-feel may be the most redeeming quality, presenting a sensation of pulp free orange juice as it rolls across your tongue.

HOPS:
Premiant, Jaryllo, Strisselspalt
MALT:
Oats, Plumage Archer, Rye

Pirahna Baath - WEB.jpg
Piranha Bath (Dry Hopped Sour)

4.5% ABV // 21 IBU // 1.052 OG

light body + floral sun brewed tea + tart

If this was anything other than beer, it would be sun brewed tea. Overtones of hibiscus and rose both dominate the flavor and aroma, finishing quite tart and very dry. As a kettle soured ale, its tartness was formed quickly and in a controlled manner. It was then dry hopped with a massive charge of Idaho grown Cascade hops, adding a sharp floral character. The final product was then filtered, granting it a beautiful ruby hue.

HOPS:
Bravo, Cascade
MALT:
2-Row Pale, C-120, Carafa, Carahel, Caramunich, Chocolate, Munich
