Beverage Kickstarter Spotlight: Tacoma Brewing Company

Beer

Here at Mutineer HQ, we want to encourage beverage entrepreneurs in their efforts to bring something new to the beverage industry. Kickstarter is a great resource for these people to bring their ideas to life.

This week I am pleased to be featuring a company from my old stomping grounds of Tacoma, Washington. So far Morgan Alexander of Tacoma Brewing Company has been brewing out of a cafe in downtown Tacoma. He needs a new workspace and to upgrade their equipment to be able to handle a higher volume of brewing, so he can continue to bring us everything from Real Ginger Ale to End Of The World Chocolate Chili Stout. Check out his Kickstarter project to see if you can contribute to his efforts.

Featuring Wisconsin’s Stevens Point Brewery, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more epic beer commercial than “The End or The Beginning,” featuring their Black Ale. What do you think?

Erin’s Pick:
Christmas Stockings made from repurposed coffee sacks.

Why I Dig Them:
I love the rustic look of the burlap and the splash of color provided by the coffee company logos. The cut is also really adorable, as is the little bell on the toe. You can even personalize stockings for yourself, friends or family. Who wouldn’t want to fill it up with fine beverage and sugar plums.

The Cost:
$40

Anchor Distilling Company Launches Hophead Vodka

Spirits

Hophead Vodka

Anchor Distilling Company has just announced the launch of Hophead Vodka, the world’s first distilled hopped vodka. Anchor Distilling Company has been at the forefront of innovation for craft distilling in America since Fritz Maytag first released Old Potrero Whiskey in 1995, followed by Junipero Gin, and Genevieve Gin.

According to David King, President of Anchor Distilling Company, Anchor had been looking for a vodka to add to their portfolio for a while, but nothing caught their eye. With the incredible history of Anchor Brewing and Fritz Maytag, creating Hophead Vodka was a natural fit.

Hophead Vodka is pot-distilled from two types of hops from Washington’s Yakima Valley, where over 75% of the United States’ hops come from. The hops impart a very clean, assertive hop character, but without the bitterness that hops are known for. If you’ve ever walked into a hops room at a brewery, opening a bottle of Hophead smells exactly like that.

Try it in a West Coast Vesper, by Russell Davis:

  • 1 oz. Hophead Vodka
  • 1 oz. Junipero Gin
  • .5 oz. Maurin Quina
  • Garnish: orange peel

Combine all ingredients into a mixing glass and add ice. Stir until proper dilution and strain into a chilled champagne coupe. Garnish with an orange peel.

Hophead Vodka is 45% ABV. It is now available in San Francisco, New York City and other key markets. Suggested retail price is $29.95. For more information, visit www.AnchorDistilling.com.
