Fisherman’s Village IPA, Scuttlebutt Brewing, Everett
Available: On tap at venues during the Fisherman’s Village Music Festival, which continues Saturday and Sunday.
My thoughts: Scuttlebutt continues to make sweet music with the Everett Music Initiative folks. This time at least it’s something you can drink.
After working with EMI to put on two waterfront shows called Rock the Boat the past two summers and hosting Fisherman’s Village Music Festival lineup release party last month, Scuttlebutt Brewing has brewed the official beer of this year’s Fisherman’s Village Music Festival. This year’s three-day event is the fourth incarnation of the music festival that takes over downtown Everett every spring.
The IPA Stromberg’s team brewed for the festival has a larger citrus flavor profile than Scuttlebutt’s other IPAs and is light and clean.
Stromberg said that the partnership continues to grow between the brewery and music promotion organization because of a natural partnership. Last month’s release party attracted 275 people to Scuttlebutt’s fledgling taproom at its production brewery in the industrial heart of Everett. Scuttlebutt wants to continue to host EMI shows in the future.
From the brewery: Everett Music Initiative asked us to create a beer for Fisherman’s Village Music Festival 2017, so we created a delicious special release that will only be available during the festival.
