Worthy Brewing Celebrates 2 Years with Dark Muse & Local 36
Worthy Brewing has now been bringing its delicious beers from Bend, OR for the past two years. As they continue to brew its year-round lineup, Worthy also brings forth its tasty seasonal offerings.
To kick off the month of February, Worthy Brewing will be releasing two seasonal beers, both on draft and in 22oz bottles.
First up is Dark Muse Imperial Stout. This second go-round is currently available at Worthy’s pub and will be hitting store shelves and better beer bars any day now. Dark Muse is a monster stout that’s smooth, complex, and dark with a rich body, roasty character and loads of warmth from its 10.1% ABV. A touch of bitterness rounds out the 60 IBUs with a full mouthfeel and round finish. The limited release of 22-ounce bottles and draft is ready to drink now or hold on to for years to come. Worthy’s brewmaster, Chad Kennedy, considers this the ultimate cold weather beer, meant to warm the body and awaken the soul with the first sip.
Then in mid-February, Local 36 Red Lager will be out in the marketplace. Local 36 comes in at 5.2% ABV with 42 IBUs, delivering a smooth, clean, and happily hopped finish. The robust red lager was brewed with a mix of domestic and imported malts and spiced with Ultra, a rare Oregon-grown aroma hop with Noble Bavarian roots. The beer is dedicated to the Local 36 Asbestos Workers Union in Portland, Oregon, as a way of saying thank you for their dedication and sacrifices. Local 36 had a very limited release in 2014 and has been added to Worthy’s seasonal line-up.
The very limited release of 22-ounce bottles and kegs for each beer will be distributed by Columbia Distribution in Oregon and Washington, Hodgen Distributing in Eastern Oregon, and by Hayden Beverage in Idaho.
