After a long hiatus, due to construction at their new location, owners James Hardesty/Nate Carlson/Tom (as the bio names him); are finally ready to take on another brewers night.
This time around the Cafe is hosting none other than former Bellingham brewer Skip Madsen. Known in the area as a former brewer of Boundary Bay, Skip will be reintroducing people to his new brewery American Brewing.
Details are still a little fuzzy but it’s a safe bet the Breakaway India Pale Ale will be featured for $3 (among others).
This American Style India Pale Ale is a true Northwest IPA; a big, bold hop aroma with floral and citrus notes greets you. Its dark honey color is a bit hazy due to dry hopping. There is a medium intense hop bitterness that doesn't linger and is well balanced with a citrusy (grapefruit), malty sweetness. Your senses score big time with this ale!
ABV: 7.2% IBU: 90
Stop in this Wednesday (at 6pm) and say hello to Skip, James, Nate, and Tom; while congratulating them on their new spot.

About The Green Frog Acoustic Cafe
In what may have been the very best hair-brained idea that James Hardesty and Nate Carlson ever had, what percolated in their brains on a fateful afternoon in the Spring of ’05 turned out to be the seed that turned into The Green Frog. The idea was to recreate the weekly gatherings at Carlson’s house that were simply known as Wednesday Night BBQ’s. Lots of friends hanging out, drinking beer, eating food, and playing music together. Those are the things that brought them all together and they just felt like there was something they could do in the public realm that might be enjoyed by even more folks.
For over 5 years the duo ran the Green Frog Cafe Acoustic Tavern in a tiny room on Bellingham’s famed State Street. What was once their idea took on a life of it’s own, created instead by the community of musicians and appreciative listeners that made up the crowd. It became known as a beacon of quality shows and as the best beer selection around. In essence, it was exactly what Hardesty and Carlson had hoped for. [more]
