Back in 2013, Two Beers Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor), released the first beer in what was dubbed their Alta Series. This is a line of specialty, high-octane brews that are Two Beers’ most over the top concoctions, pushing the limits of both complex flavors and ABV.
Upon it’s first release, the Russian Imperial Stout from their Alta Series was named Switchback, after switchback type hiking trails (in case you weren’t aware, Two Beers’ founder, Joel VandenBrink, is a huge hiking fan). Switchback was later renamed to Fall Line and was joined by the rest of the Alta Series beers: Overhang Imperial Porter, High Divide Double Blonde Ale and Ascension Triple IPA (although they haven’t brewed Ascension in a while).
Now, Fall Line Russian Imperial Stout is ready to make it’s return once again one week from Saturday on February 20th, coinciding with Washington’s annual Washington Beer Open House. Before it arrives, however, Two Beers Brewing will need your help. Coming up next Wednesday the 17th, Two Beers will hold a Wax Dip Party, where you can help wax dip the Fall Line bottles.
Here is some information about this event and the Wax Dip Party from Two Beers Brewing Company:
Wax Dipping Party | Wednesday, Feb. 17 | 3-5:30 pm and 5:30-8pmHelp us wax dip Fall Line Russian Imperial Stout, a favorite from our Alta Series! The fun will begin at 3pm as you enjoy beer and cider while you dip. Plus, take home a free bottle at the end of your shift! We ask you be ready to help for at least two hours.

Fall Line Release Party & WA Beer Open House | Saturday, Feb. 20 | 12-5pm
Two Beers Brewing Company will be a destination supporting the Washington Beer Open House. Join us for the release of Fall Line Russian Imperial Stout, plus limited edition taps from both Two Beers Brewing and Seattle Cider Company. There’s no reason to go hungry! Plan to have lunch and dinner filled with beer-infused menu items at The Woods thanks to Bread and Circuses kitchen space.
10oz pour – $8
22oz bottle – $14About the Alta Series
Fall Line Russian Imperial Stout, $14 (12% ABV; 50 IBUs): The biggest of stouts, Russian Imperials were born out of the cold north and the Russian court’s desire for rich, dark brews. Ours is a deep, multilayered one. Aged in brandy barrels for six months on cherries, vanilla and cacao nibs, a smooth body carries immense flavors of coffee, chocolate, cherries and barrel-aged complexity.
Overhang Imperial Porter, $14 (12.9% ABV; 60 IBUs): Ushering in the cooler days of autumn, Overhang is aged in bourbon barrels for six months with cocoa, cinnamon and a touch of cloves. The result is a roasted caramel and molasses nose with a rich brown head.
Whether you come to the Wax Dip party on the 17th or just for the Fall Line release during Washington Beer Open House, this is also a great opportunity for you to visit The Woods taproom and check out Two Beers/Seattle Cider’s food partner Bread And Circuses, if you haven’t already. I recently attended an impressive media dinner at The Woods, where Bread And Circuses were flexing their culinary muscle a bit. The partnership has made The Woods a great dinner destination for your next evening out.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
