It only happens occasionally. But when it does, it might behoove you beer connoisseurs out there to take advantage of the situation and stock up: Local brewery Sockeye is bottling some beer. Lovingly, painstakingly hand-bottling and labeling their beer just for you, and just for special batches.
Brewers from Sockeye have teamed up again with brewers from Tablerock to create an imperial Belgian-style IPA they’ve named Dubbel Trubbel. With a moniker like that, it’s probably a good thing that you can enjoy it at home where there might be less trouble to get into. After all, with an alcohol content of 9.5 percent (as opposed to lighter beers that come in around 3 or 4 percent), who knows what might happen after drinking a 22-ounce bottle of the stuff?
The Double Dagger that was bottled at the same time and released at both Sockeye and Tablerock earlier this month has sold out, but there are still bottles of the Dubbel Trubbel to be had. If you head up to Sockeye tonight, you can catch local Americana jam band Sherpa doing their thing on stage before taking your beer and heading out.
