Collaboration Ale marks the beginning of another "fun" service at Forbidden Peak Brewery. FPB was asked to team up with Geoteaming (a company that builds leadership & team skills through technology and adventure using GPS) to create a label & FPB beer specific for their company adventures and excursions.
Working closely with Geoteaming President & Director of Fun Adam Hitch, the staff at FPB was able to create a label that stems from the 5 important points of a team building compass- Collaboration, Leadership, Trust, Communication, and BEER! What better way to finish a team-building exercise than to find the "treasure" chest of ice cold Collaboration Ale at the end.
This marks an exciting time at Forbidden Peak and our first official collaboration with another company. FPB has and will continue to engage with other "net positive" organizations throughout the Pacific Northwest. Remember that fun is our goal, and getting people organized in social and active lifestyles in the outdoors is our purpose.
Forbidden Peak Brewery is proud to introduce our latest beer to the family- The Graduate IPA. In commemoration of Dr. Sara (ie Dr. Hops) the crew at Forbidden Peak has put together a beer that competes with other world class IPA's.
The Graduate is a deep copper-gold color and has a big white head. An exciting fruity hop aroma lingers off the top of the beer. The flavor is initially dominated by hopiness, but is followed by a balanced hop and malt combination. The aftertaste is long, crisp, and leaves a dry hop flavor in your mouth. Satisfying, yet stirring demand for more.
Little Known Fact: No breweries in India currently brew India Pale Ales.
Dr. Hops is graduating with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Washington. A long, hard fought battle through various schools & programs now comes to an epic end. This beer was made to thank Dr. Hops in advance, for taking care of all the crew at Forbidden Peak.
