Like many spring babies, Redwood Curtain Brewing Co. is adjusting its birthday celebrations for the pandemic. Instead of blowing it up with a multi-kegger and a bunch of new releases, the local craft beer company is taking a low-key and charitable approach, introducing a new brew and giving a portion of the sales to Food for People.
Humboldt Rising Pale Ale is described in a press release as having a "tight, compact and dense head. Toasted, golden orange in color. Mango, pineapple, orange citrus and mild earthy aromatics float while a mellow wave of subtle malt and juicy pineapple eases your palate into a bright pleasant finish." Those who want to quench their thirst and help those struggling with food insecurity can pick up growlers and crowlers curbside and to go. Or, as the release points out, you can donate directly at www.foodforpeople.org.
Read the full press release below:
First and foremost, our hearts go out to any of our community members who have been impacted by the coronavirus, either directly or indirectly. Those that are sick, our thoughts and heartfelt wishes go out to you for a full recovery.
We are very thankful for the support and commitment of our community in these unprecedented and uncertain times. Without you, we wouldn’t have our doors open and crew working. We have been fortunate enough to be open for Togo/ curbside beer sales at both of our locations from 12pm-8pm daily. We have begun production in the brewhouse once again and are excited to be back to milling and mashing.
As we breached a decade of brewing this year, we are thrilled to be able to give back with a new beer release. In conjunction with supporting one of our local food banks, Food For People, whose mission in of itself goes above and beyond for our community, we are proud to introduce:
Humboldt Rising Pale Ale A tight, compact and dense head. Toasted, golden orange in color. Mango, pineapple, orange citrus and mild earthy aromatics float while a mellow wave of subtle malt and juicy pineapple eases your palate into a bright pleasant finish. Brewed with Rahr Pale, Weyermann Vienna, Weyermann Pale Wheat malt, Mosaic, Simcoe Tettanger, Cascade, Galaxy hops and with our proprietary English yeast strain. 5.2% ABV 12 IBU 13.00 OG
A portion of all the proceeds from every growler and crowler fill, goes directly to Food For People. If you would like to donate to them directly, please go to their website www.foodforpeople.org to find their donation page.
As we turn 10 years old this year, a lot has changed. Our usual anniversary celebration entails numerous new beer releases, events all week long and wrapping it up with a huge party filled with live music, games and giveaways. We are looking forward to sharing new beer releases with everyone throughout the whole year, in hopes of cheers-ing one another soon. We are saddened to not be able to share and celebrate with you this year, but know that the support you’ve been giving us over the last three months has kept our doors open, staff working and beer brewing.
From all of us here at Redwood Curtain Brewery, we say Thank you!
Cheers to beers and another 10 years!!!
