FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Payette Brewing and Hayden Beverage are proud to announce Ūsful Glassworks, Inc is the 2015 recipient of Payette Forward IPA. 100% of proceeds from the sale of Payette Forward IPA will be earmarked to make upgrades to the organization’s fire polisher. With the help of senior engineers at Boise State University, this project will increase Ūsful’s production capacity from 100 glass items per day to 500. In turn, continue to help those with employment barriers find jobs through their glass recycling program.
“Ūsful Glassworks is tremendously grateful for our long time relationship with Payette Brewing Company. Payette Brewing has supported our program almost since their inception through both financial donations and glass bottle donations. We are very excited and proud to receive the Payette Forward grant which will be used to grow our jobs training program,” Carlyn Blake, Executive Director.
Payette Forward IPA is a beautiful amber-colored ale with distinct hop flavors and a pleasant malt presence. It pairs nicely with spicy foods, enhancing the fiery qualities as well as the hop flavors of the brew. Payette Forward IPA will be on tap at Payette Brewing and will be available at bars and restaurants the beginning of December. For more information on where you can get our Payette Forward IPA, head on over to our Adventure Log on our website.
