A taste of Northwest Brewing Company's beers is akin to a trip around the world. The brewery, formerly Trade Route Brewing Company, finds inspiration in the trade routes of old, which is why its brewmaster incorporate exotic ingredients such as ginger when crafting each batch with time-honored brewing methods. These eclectic flavors beget distinctive beers, such as the Mango Weizen, which stirs taste buds with Nugget hops and mango puree, and the Local Ink which has Aromatic, Dextrapils, Chocolate, Crystal, Munich, and Roasted Barley malts and is bittered with Magnum. Not content to keep their flavors in liquid form, Northwest Brewing Company also slings a menu of gastropub cuisine– including BBQ from Brank's, gourmet pizzas and cheese-slathered pasta dishes– backed by live music every Saturday night.
Tasting at Uptown Market July 18th, from 5pm-8pm
