Local Scuttlebutt Ales on Sale!

Slide into Springtime with a couple of classy sipping brews from Everett’s own Scuttlebutt Brewing – on sale now!

Support this local, husband and wife-owned company that sources all of its ingredients from Northwest producers. Beer is mostly water, and Scuttlebutt uses pristine drinking water from the Spada Reservoir in the Cascade Mountains. Their barley comes from Vancouver (WA), hops from Yakima and Mabton, with a proprietary yeast strain from Odell, OR. The brewery also recycles its spent grain to help feed a herd of 120 beef cattle on a local farm outside of Arlington, WA.

Now on sale for $6.99 per six pack:

Tripel 7 Belgian Style Ale from Scuttlebutt Brewing, Everett, WA – 9% alcohol by volume / 11 IBU.

Gentle Bullion and Czech Saaz hops make for low bitterness and big flavor with a hint of tartness. High alcohol content makes it a terrific smooth sipping beer, perfect for those sunny afternoons and sunset evenings of early spring. Pair with your favorite cheese, hearty chili and stews, as well as burgers and pasta dishes.

Amber Ale from Scuttlebutt Brewing, Everett, WA – 5% alcohol by volume / 23 IBU. Scuttlebutt’s classic amber ale is a copper hued brew suitable to pair with almost any meal.
