Nestled along the coast in Northern California sits North Coast Brewing Company, a brewery that has been brewing exceptional beers since 1988. And 31 years later the brewery continues to innovate and is excited to release its first seasonal beer of 2019. Beachmaster Imperial India Pale Ale is now available to fans for the second year on draft and in 12-ounce bottles.
Beachmaster Imperial India Pale Ale is a full-bodied beer at 9% ABV and is named in honor of the mighty northern elephant seals that frequent California’s Mendocino Coast. Beachmaster is a tribute to North Coast Brewing’s flagship beer, Ruedrich’s Red Seal Ale, which began the brewery’s commitment to conserving and protecting marine mammal life 30 years ago.
“Our home along the beautiful Northern California coast plays a big part in the inspiration behind our beers and our mission,” said North Coast Brewing Co. Brewmaster, Chuck Martins in a statement. “We created Beachmaster to share our deep love for the Pacific Coast with fans near and far.”
As part of its mission to make the world a better place one pint at a time, North Coast Brewing highlights the importance of marine mammal research efforts and rescue through its beers. Beachmaster rounds out North Coast Brewing’s roster of marine-centric beers, including Red Seal Ale, North Coast Steller IPA, named for the Steller sea lions, and Laguna Baja, inspired by the seasonal migration of gray whales along the Pacific Coast.
