River City IPA – You can’t call yourself a brewery in the Pacific Northwest without making a great IPA. River City’s IPA stands tall in the tradition of India Pale Ales but with the Northwest’s desire to celebrate the tangy hops grown in the Yakima Valley and sent all over the world. We add hops five times during the making of this beer. We add Nugget and Cascade hops for bittering, then more Cascade hops for flavoring late in the boil, include a final dose of Cascade and Bravo hops at the finish for aroma and then dry hop after fermentation with more Bravo hops. Nearly a pound and a half of hops are used for every single keg of this beer, so let’s hope that it preserves us as well as the beer. The River City IPA starts strong and floral on the nose and then the earthy spice of the hop grabs your tongue. In a part of the world that can’t seem to get enough hops, this beer will quench your thirst along with your hop desires. O.G. – 12.5 - 13.0 / I.B.U. – 65 / A.B.V. - 5.3%
All of our beers are made with regional ingredients – water from the Spokane aquifer, grains from the region and malted just north of the border, hops from the Yakima Valley and yeast originated in Oregon. Each one is hand-crafted in our downtown brewery and is the result of years of tasting, testing and experience. We love making beer, talking about beer and, yes, drinking beer.
