Zupan’s Markets and Laurelwood Brewing Collaborate on Farm To Market Hazy Double IPA

Portland’s gourmet grocer, Zupan’s Markets, is excited to announce the 28th installment of its Farm-to-Market beer series that sees the grocer partner with a regionally owned brewer or cidermaker. This intriguing series dates back to 2015 and on its latest edition, Zupan’s Markets has brought in Laurelwood Brewing for its newly released Farm To Market Hazy Double IPA. This new beer marks the second collaboration between the two Portland-based companies. 

Farm to Market Hazy Double IPA is described as offering a smooth, resiny grapefruit flavor with a tropical, dank citrus aroma, set against a backdrop of rosy straw-orange haze and a light yellow-orange tan head. The beer is crafted from a blend of premium malts and a diverse selection of hops for a complex yet balanced profile.

The new beer is the brainchild of Laurelwood’s Head Brewer, Paul Plett, and came to life in the tanks of Hopworks Brewery after what appears to be the closure of Laurelwood’s brewing operations in Northeast Portland. Mike DeKalb, founder of Laurelwood Brewing, selected the B-Corp-certified Hopworks for its outstanding brewing capabilities and stellar reputation in the Portland beer community to continue Laurelwood’s tradition of crafting award-winning beers.

“We’re thrilled to once again collaborate with Zupan’s Markets – this time, to debut our exceptional Hazy Double IPA,” said Plett, in a press release. “The complex flavor profile, carefully selected hops and citrus notes of this IPA pair well with a wide range of fare from barbecue chicken and goat cheese stuffed portobello mushrooms to a classic, juicy burger. The tropical notes make this the perfect beer to enjoy as the days grow longer and the temperatures get warmer throughout spring in the Pacific Northwest.”
