For every revolution, there are revolutionaries. For every frontier, there are pioneers. For Washington craft beer pubs, there is Bob Brenlin.
As owner of The Latona, Hopvine and Fiddler’s Inn, Bob Brenlin was ahead of his time in creating craft-centric pubs in Seattle. To celebrate how far the culture of craft beer has come in Washington state, Bob and Patrick Wilson, general manager of The Latona, journeyed east to No-Li Brewhouse, rolled up their sleeves and helped brew the newest beer in the No Boundaries series: Re-Fresh Tart Pale Ale.
“Working with Bob was a great pleasure,” said No-Li Head Brewer Carey Fristoe. “The wealth of knowledge he possesses is great. The opportunity to collaborate with him opened the door to brew an interesting and memorable beer. It’s light, fruity and refreshingly tart. I think he’ll be proud to share this with his pub patrons.”
To complete the Spokane-Style experience, Bob and Patrick stayed at the beautiful historic Davenport Hotel and even raised a pint to celebrate the opening of The Blackbird with Patrick McPherson.
About the beer
Tropical fruit and cherry hop aromas dance lightly over a sessionable pale base. Lactic Acid produced during a kettle sour gives a pleasant, sour sensation. Wheat and rye provide a smooth, spicy character to balance the big fruit aroma of Mosaic, El Dorado and Amarillo hops. Dry hopping with Mosaic and El Dorado accentuate the tropical and cherry hop aromas and flavors. At 4.5 percent ABV, this light, tart, fruity beer promises to be a real thirst quencher.
