NEXT ADVENTURE BLACK IPA:Fort George Brewery’s Fall Seasonal Collaboration

The spring started with Tender Loving Empire NWPA. For summer Fort George teamed up with Gigantic and Lompoc Brewing to offer you our first 3-Way IPA. And now, it’s time for the Next Adventure Black IPA – a blend of local craft beer and the unlimited possibilities of outdoor adventure.

“We wanted to make a beer with all of the hop flavor and aromatics of an IPA, but with a rich, dark color and a bright white head,” explains Fort George co-owner Chris Nemlowill. “If you close your eyes and drink this beer, you should feel like you’re tasting a hoppy IPA.”

“We were really flattered when Fort George approached us to do this collaboration,” said Bryan Knudsen, co-owner with Deek Heykamp of Next Adventure – Portland’s alternative outdoor store. “Next Adventure is thrilled to be the namesake of Fort George’s latest creation. Much like their focus on brewing quality beer, Next Adventure has been dedicated to providing quality gear at a great price since 1997.”

The adventure begins with a can release party at Belmont Station in Portland, Saturday September 14th from 2pm – 5pm. Plan on sampling Fort George beers and joining mini-contests for loads of gift cards and prizes.
