Double Mountain Brewery is bringing back their seasonal Clusterf#k and making it hazy for these cloudy times we live in. Hazy Clusterf#k IPA is available now on-draft and in bottles at both Portland and Hood River taprooms and will be available in distribution throughout the northwest.
Strange days call for clarity, or perhaps a lack of clarity. For our next seasonal beer we decided to brew a style that defies good judgement and good reasoning, thus its a clusterf#k or more specifically a Hazy Clusterf#k. In these unsteady times, it seems fitting to bring back our Clusterf#ck IPA beer for the occasion. This year seems particularly clustered, so we made it a hazy. Clusters are used through-out the brew. What a wonderful hop. Tradition. And then we pivot.
Hazy Clusterf#k IPA is available in refillable 500ml bottles and on draft Clusterf#k IPA 6.8% ABV 75 BU
“If you haven’t noticed, it is fucking clusterf#k out there. Seriously. Global Pandemic, Police Brutality, Pride Boys, White Nationalism, Economic meltdowns, business failures, home-schooling, left-over pizza, hoarding toilet paper, Presidential tantrums, daily protests in the streets, complete ignorance of science…… just to name a few. Our cluster f#k just got a little hazy- And why fucking not.” Matt Swihart, Owner & Brewmaster
REDUCE, REUSE, REPEAT! With news appearing throughout media outlets on the shortcomings of recycling and OPB reporting that Oregon recycling is on the decline, we determined that there is no better time than the present to share the information on why to choose refillable bottles. Complimenting this delicious experimental series, each beer’s label highlights the benefits of using refillable bottles. The carbon footprint of refillable bottles is vastly lower than other container choices, making it the best container for the environment. Add the benefit of reduced oxidation, and refillable bottles are better for the beer too. Reduce, Reuse, Repeat, a solid mantra, not only for refillable bottles but containers in general.
