Brontosaurus Supernova IPA
We first brewed this beer for Beer Junction’s 6th Anniversary back in 2016. It was an IPA with dinosaurs and supernovas and space and hops and other great amazing things that make beer! It was also about supporting a small business with exceptional practices, offering fresh beer to the tight knit West Seattle community. The beer was a hit! And we said we’d never brew it again! But in 2019, word got around that Morgan was battling Multiple Myeloma and after a couple conversations, we agreed to bring this beer back, so long as the profits would go to Fred Hutch earmarked for MM research. Shortly after our last exchange, Morgan passed away. The pandemic was taking off and we were forced to table the beer once more, until we could celebrate Morgan – which is NOW! Like, TODAY! In the interim, our friends at Skagit Valley Malt got wind of a great cause and donated the malt. As for hops, it’s the same bill as before – GALAXY (duh), CITRA, MOSAIC, SIMCOE and MANDARINA. On that note, a cheers to you Morgan – Here’s to good people gone too soon, here’s to hope and faith in scientific research, and here’s to keeping promises to friends, past and present. And to dinosaurs, in space, wearing spacesuits, shooting lasers.
