Today, Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) has released a new variety case of beer called the Homebound Hero 24 Pack. The case is a packaging of four readily available six-packs of Hopworks’ core beers: the newly released Golden Hammer Organic Lager, Tree Frog Organic Pale Ale, Powell IPA, and Robot Panda Hazy IPA.
Homebound Hero 24 Pack sells for $40 as $5 of each sale will be donated to the Looptworks Foundation to produce face masks for Central City Concern, a non-profit organization providing housing, health care and employment services for homeless people in Portland. Customers can order the “Homebound Hero 24 Pack” at www.hopworksbeer.com for curbside pickup and no-touch delivery through the end of April.
“Here at Hopworks, we’re passionate about using beer as a force for good and this Earth Day we’re excited to focus on the health of people in addition to the planet,” said Christian Ettinger, in a press release. “What better way to use reclaimed materials than to sew masks for local community members that need them most? We love contributing to this great partnership between purpose driven businesses.”
According to brewery as stated in its press release, its beers protect the planet with sustainable sourcing that is said to preserve Oregon’s waters and soil. Each beer brewed by HUB is brewed at a Salmon-Safe certified brewery site. Plus the brewery’s two newest releases, Golden Hammer Organic Lager and Tree Frog Organic Pale Ale are USDA Certified Organic.
Here are descriptions on each of the beers that are part of the Homebound Hero 24 Pack as provided to us by the brewery.
Golden Hammer Organic Lager features organic Northwest and German ingredients in a new take on Germany’s most popular beer: the Munich-style Helles. Notes of honey malt aroma and flavor greet herbaceous and floral hops at the castle door.
Tree Frog Organic Pale Ale is fueled by organic Fuggle, Citra, and Mosaic hops that jump from branch to branch with juicy, floral notes that deliver the perfect amount of dank hop aroma.
Powell IPA is Hopworks’ flagship IPA that celebrates its Powell Blvd. brewery, brimming with melon, tropical fruit, and a perfectly balanced bitterness.
Robot Panda Hazy IPA is fruity and juicy with a fluffy mouthfeel and notes of spruce, tangerine, and papaya derived from Denali, Lemondrop, and Cascade hops.
