Spring is in the air at Hopworks Urban Brewery, as the first Certified B Corp brewer releases its spring seasonal, Juicy Bear IPA. For the second year, Juicy Bear IPA is available through June 2021 in 12oz cans with great artwork from Martin Ontiveros.
Juicy Bear IPA is a juicy, full-bodied, yet totally crushable IPA brewed with Nelson Sauvin, Hallertau Blanc, and Lemondrop hops, which bring aromas of guava, white grape, and gooseberry. The beer clocks in at 6.5% ABV and 40 IBU.
“Juicy Bear IPA was inspired by the diet of the ubiquitous black bears of the Pacific Northwest. Black bears feast all summer on juicy berries, which led us to create a unique blend of three hops from three different continents to mimic that experience,” said Christian Ettinger, Founder and Brewmaster at Hopworks, in a statement. “Great flavor, original artwork, and sustainable brewing—what’s not to love?!”

The special is available now at both the Powell Mothership at 2944 SE Powell Blvd. and at HUB’s Vancouver location at 17707 SE Mill Plain Blvd. Yum!
