Full Sail Brewing Company Celebrates 25 Year of Crafting Beers
It’s been 25 years since we brewed up our first batch of beer and to celebrate we have crafted “25,” a pale doppelbock to celebrate this special occasion: the brewery’s 25th anniversary.
“On September 27, 1987 we opened our doors to living the dream. A dream to open a small brewery that focused on quality, creativity, and authenticity. A brewery that we would run with respect for our employees, the environment, and our community. A brewery that reflected our deep respect for the art and science of brewing. So here we are 25 years later. Very humbled, grateful, and amazed that we got here in one piece. Still a mix of beer geeks and boardheads. Still independent. Still trying to find that perfect balance between art and commerce, work and play, inspiration and perspiration. We are very grateful to our fellow employee owners, our distributors, and our retail partners, all who helped to make our dream real and thriving for 25 years. And mostly, we are deeply grateful to every one of our customers who have toasted, celebrated, quenched their thirst, and enjoyed our beers over the last 25 years. We thank you all for living the dream along with us,” said Irene Firmat, Full Sail’s CEO & Founder.
According to Full Sail’s Executive Brewmaster Jamie Emmerson, “25” is a complex, luxurious beer brewed with Vienna malt and Saaz hops. Extended lagering produces full bodied flavors of caramel and honey with a hoppy backbone of white pepper and lemon spice. A beer made for celebration, Full Sail 25 is an elegant Northwest Style Pale Doppelbock. This new brew was recently awarded a gold medal at the 2012 World Beer Championships, It will be available throughout their 25th year on draft and in 22 oz bottles. IBU 70 9.0% ABV
Next time you’re in Hood River, stop by for a beer, sit out on our deck, enjoy the amazing view, and toast to the next 25!
