Bainbridge Island, WA - September 15, 2015 - Bainbridge Brewing is proud to announce that its draft-only Fall lineup of seasonal beers will soon be hitting taps around the Puget Sound.

Washington SMaSH! – Fresh Amarillo & Alba Single Malt Ale
5.6% ABV - Unknown IBU - Fresh Hop Beer
September 18th Release - Single Malt, Single Hop, Single State. A much anticipated, once-a-year
release, this unique ale is brewed using 100% Skagit Valley Alba malt, grown and malted in Washington State. We then use 200 pounds of fresh, whole-cone Amarillo hops, picked just the day before at Virgil Gamache Farms in Toppenish in Yakima Valley. The result is the essence of a time and place: the aroma of Washington's vast hopyards during the late summer harvest. Amarillo's distinctive grapefruit character shines, as well as subtler notes of tropical fruits, and citrus. Malt: Skagit Valley Alba™. Hops: 100% WA Amarillo™.

Sol Patch Pumpkin Ale
6.5% ABV - 35 IBU - Pumpkin Ale
October 2nd Release – Brewed once a year with pumpkins locally grown right here on the island, Sol Patch Pumpkin Ale is an Autumn staple. Amber colored with hints of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon,
caramel and pumpkin. Maris Otter, Special Aromatic, C-75, Special Roast and Extra Special Roast. Hops: Apollo and Willamette. Roasted Pumpkin and Spices.

Saison du Bainbridge
6.5% ABV - 30 IBU - Belgian-Style Saison Ale
October 2nd Release - A Fall seasonal Belgian farmhouse-style ale, Saison du Bainbridge is a rustic,
effervescent, spicy and slightly tart beer brewed for those busy days around harvest time. Experimental hop ADHA 529 and exotic spices add interesting accents to this already complex brew. Malts: Pilsner, Vienna, Munich, Spelt, Sour and Carared. Hops: ADHA 529. Spices: Ajwain and Balinese Long Pepper.
