Hungry for a summit this year, Two Beers’ Climb Team Captain, Kristen Oliphant calls her journey “the greatest physical and mental challenge I could endure. I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful cause as my team and I raise awareness to keep our beautiful National Parks protected.” With four veteran climbers from 2018 and four new climbers, the team comprised of staff from Two Beers, Seattle Cider, and Sound Craft Seltzer are eager to prove both their fundraising and climbing prowess.

As I’m sure many of you know, Two Beers’ Wonderland Trail IPA was inspired by founder, Joel VandenBrink, and his 2015 trek around the full length (93 miles) of the Wonderland Trail surrounding Mt. Rainier. That’s why it’s the prefect beer to lead this fundraising effort. Be sure to pick some up the next time you visit The Woods (the taproom Two Beers Brewing shares with its sister companies, Seattle Cider Co. and Sound Seltzer Co.) and you’ll be helping the cause.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
