Hopworks Urban Brewery of Portland, Oregon, and Payette Brewing of Boise, Idaho, have teamed up for a collaborative beer that playfully brings the best of both regions together. The resulting beer, brewed at Payette, is Potato Gun IPA, an Idaho Potato Ale. Potato Gun was brewed with over fifty pounds of organic, Idaho purple potatoes, and Amarillo, Crystal, and Zeus hops.
Potato Gun IPA will be released for the first time in Oregon on Wed., February 18 at both Hopworks Urban Brewery and Hopworks BikeBar. Purple Potato Fry specials will be served at the Hopworks brew pub on Powell to complement the beer.
The following night, Thurs. February 19, from 6-9 pm, Potato Gun IPA will be released at The Civic Taproom in SW Portland. The night will feature beer from both Hopworks and Payette, a potato gun shooting range, swag giveaways and Boise Fry Company will have free Purple Potato Fry samples.
