Bob’s Day Only 1 Week Away – May 14th!

May 7, 2010

Courtesty of Georgetown Brewing Company

Possibly lost in all the Seattle Beer Week hype is the annual release of one my favorite beers of all time, Georgetown Brewing’s Bob’s Brown Ale. This magnificent hoppy brown ale is only released once a year on May 14th, in honor of Georgetown’s friend, Bob, who fought a long hard fight with cancer. The date is highly anticipated, and many locations have special keg tapping nights that blow out their kegs quicker and quicker each year. All proceeds from Bob’s Brown are donated to the Ronald McDonald House.

I encourage everyone to go out and have a Bob’s Brown Ale. For one, it is darn tasty, and for two it supports charity. What a win, win.

Here is the information from the Georgetown Website, including the locations that will have Bob’s on tap.

Bob’s is a special beer brewed in honor of our friend, Bob Hirsch, who fought cancer valiantly for many years. He lived his final days to the fullest and he is an inspiration to all of us. Bob’s Brown Ale will be released every May 14th (Bob’s birthday). 100% of our proceeds from Bob’s will be donated in honor of Charles “Bob” Hirsch to the Seattle Ronald McDonald House to provide a “home-away-from-home” for Children’s Hospital patients and families.

Bob’s Brown Ale is big and brown with lots of hops. We use a blend of 2-row Pale, Caramel, Chocolate, Munich, and Roasted Barley Malts, then add sh*t loads of Centennial and Crystal hops to make this a meaty brown brew. Alcohol by volume is 6.3%.

    Thanks for the reminder! You’re right — I nearly forgot. This is one of my all-time favorites as well.
