The Friday beer: Boundary Bay IPA

Dec 23, 2011

It's the time of year when people reflect back on what they are thankful for... friends, family, good health, a job (for those lucky enough to have weathered the tough economy).

Here in the Pacific Northwest we can also be thankful for a wealth of good beer.

The Boundary Bay IPA from Bellingham, Wash., is one of those beers that I'm always happy to see on the menu. It's not over the top on the hops and it's not too sweet. The citrus and piney aroma hits just right. It's one of the many, many well crafted beers we’re lucky to have in this corner of the world.

As we get ready to close up 2011 and move into 2012, many will be thinking of New Year's resolutions. Will any of yours involve Northwestern craft beers?
