Happy Birthday, Oregon!
Just in time for Oregon’s 162nd birthday, which falls on Valentine’s Day, MBW presents “Lovin’ Oregon IPA”. This collaboration between MBW and Heart in Oregon was brewed to celebrate Oregon’s birthday and to recognize the tenacity of small businesses that are pivoting through the Covid pandemic. The founders of Heart in Oregon and MBW both reside in Montavilla, which aligns the release with MBW’s neighborhood collaboration model.
From the official press release:
“This collaboration between MBW and Heart in Oregon is what makes this job so rewarding,” said Michael Kora, MBW founder and head brewer. “We’ve always enjoyed partnering with other local businesses that share our vision of keeping things local, serving the community, and supporting each other in good times and bad. 2020 was an incredibly challenging year, particularly for small businesses like ours that had to pivot their business model to accommodate Covid-related safety protocols. It made sense to collaborate with Heart in Oregon, not only to celebrate Oregon’s 161st birthday but to celebrate surviving 2020 in the resilient state we live in.”
“Lovin’ Oregon” is a West Coast IPA brewed with pilsner and pale malts that support a medium-light body, easy drinkability and a dry finish. Falconer’s Flight hops impart tropical and fruity flavors while maintaining a restrained yet suitable bitterness. This IPA is dry hopped with Citra and Strata hops with aromas of grapefruit, lime, tropical fruit and dank herb. 6.5% ABV.
