Known for having a charitable heart, Georgetown Brewing is back in the giving spirit once again with its latest release, The Home Shows Seattle Pale Ale.
Founded in 2002 by two longtime friends, Manny Chao and Roger Bialous, Georgetown Brewing is Washington State’s second largest brewery. This past year it produced 64,000 barrels of beer. This is an amazing amount of beer as until mid-year in 2017, its beer was only available on draft. Now a few select varieties make its way to 12-ounce cans, including its new The Home Shows Seattle Pale Ale.
For the release of The Home Shows Seattle Pale Ale, Georgetown Brewing partnered with legendary Seattle band Pearl Jam for its upcoming sold out concerts at Safeco Field in Seattle on August 8th and 10th. These two concerts, the first Seattle shows in five years sold out months ago. We too were unfortunately left without tickets to the shows.
Both concerts will bring stronger awareness and raise money for Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation to fight homelessness in King County. The band has committed to giving at least $1M to this fight. Here’s a few words from the band about the homelessness struggles facing Seattle..
But you too can contribute to the Vitalogy Foundation by purchasing a 6-pack of The Home Shows Seattle Pale Ale. In partnering with Pearl Jam, the brewer will donate $2.00 per 6-pack sales and 100% of Tasting Room growler sales of The Home Shows Seattle Pale Ale to the band’s Vitalogy Foundation .
Upon cracking open a can of The Home Shows Seattle Pale Ale the beer pours a straw color. Aromas of light malt and subtle hops fill the nose followed by flavors of fruit. This 5.2% ABV Pale Ale is brewed for everyday drinking and we agree, it’s a “Darn tasty Pale Ale”!
