The latest brewery to join the Drinkers for Ukraine fundraising project is Kings & Daughters Brewery. The Hood River, Oregon based brewery will release Resist IPA, a beer brewed in Clackamas that will see $10,000 going to Together Rising’s Ukraine Response to aid in their humanitarian relief efforts.

The owners of Kings & Daughters Brewery, Kyle and Kacie Larsen, spent a handful of years living in England. Kyle was the head brewer of Siren Craft Brew in the UK. While there, he invited Lana Svitankova of Varvar Brew from Kyiv to collaborate on the creation of an Imperial Stout called Mavka. In light of current events, Kyle contacted Lana. She suggested we join an initiative she is working on Drinkers for Ukraine, to create this solidarity brew named Resist and their involvement began to take hold.

Resist IPA is 6.8% ABV Hazy IPA hearkens back to Kyle’s time at Siren making a plethora of NE Style IPAs and really gives him an excuse to play outside the brewery’s self-imposed boundaries for a good cause. Mandarina and Strata hops feature heavily in the whirlpool building a fruity base for this beer. In the dry hop the focus was on Vic Secret and El Dorado with a bit more Strata. Expect pineapple, orange, a bit of dank and under ripe papaya flavors. The hops are backed up by Idaho Pils from Great Western malting and a sizable addition of flaked wheat to create that fluffy mouthfeel. A modest but noticeable bitterness helps balance out the beer.

Over the coming weeks, Kings & Daughters will host three beer release and fundraising events across the Pacific Northwest.
