Fish Tale Ales has been cranking out craft brews in Olympia Washington since October of 1993. You know them as the most recognizable brand from Fish Brewing Company. What you might not be aware of though is that, through various mergers and acquisitions through the years, the name Fish Brewing Company now also includes the brands: Leavenworth Biers, Spire Mountain Cider and, added just last year, Vitis Spirits (Aka: Grapeworks Distilling).
Fish Tale Ales is popular with the organic crowd, thanks to their Organic IPA, which is made from 100% locally sourced organic malted barley and hops. Now, as part of their commitment to sustainability, Fish is expanding their organic line to include Organic Porter and Organic Red Ale. All three beers will now be available in both 12 oz cans and 22 oz bottles.
Here is the full press release form Fish Brewing Company:
Olympia, WA – Fish Tale Ales is expanding their portfolio of organic beers by providing a package that reflects Fish Brewing’s commitment to sustainability and adding two new styles. Organic Porter and Organic Red Ale join their already established organic offering, India Pale Ale. All three products will be available in 12oz cans and 22oz bottles.
“Our local market is growing right along with us. We love to see how palates change and evolve. We are excited at expanding our lineup by bringing new beer choices to our customers “. Matt Lisowski, Executive Vice President.
Can packages are especially popular in the growing craft beer market, offering many benefits for brewers and consumers, according to Sal Leone, Fish Brewing’s President. “Cans are recyclable, lighter, chill faster and are often welcome where glass bottles are not, Fish Tale Ales is thrilled to provide its customers the best possible vessel to house our organic series of beers” Sal said.
Fish Tale Organic India Pale Ale is a medium-bodied beer with a rich golden color. The organic pale and crystal malts lay down a firm malt body. This provides the backbone for an assertive hop profile featuring organic Cascade and Centennial hops grown in the Yakima Valley. The moment the mighty Fish Brewers sampled this pungent and resinous hop, they knew it would be perfect for their Organic IPA. Alcohol: 6.7% ABV | Color: Pale Copper | IBUs: 42 | Plato: 15
Fish Tale Organic Red Ale is a medium-bodied with a gorgeous red amber hue. Its organic pale, Munich, and crystal malts create a gentle sweet character that is difficult to resist. From organic Hallertauer hops comes a zesty flavor and aroma that beautifully balance Organic Amber’s malt profile. Alcohol: 5% ABV | Color: Red Amber | IBUs: 22 | Plato: 16.5
The Porter is our newest release in our Fish Tale Organic series, it is an easy drinking Porter with a satisfying dry finish and rich notes of chocolate. Smooth, dark, and bittersweet cocoa flavors linger on the palate from first pint to last. The result is a wonderfully smooth and creamy Organic Porter that salutes organic farmers and all the goodness they bring to our tables.
Alcohol: 5.5% ABV | Color: Dark Chocolate | IBUs: 40 | Plato: 14.5
