Everybody’s Brewing announced today the release of their newest beer, Mountain Mama Pale Ale. Coming in at 5.6% ABV, and 55 IBUs, the hop profile is led by Citra and Cascade, with CTZ used for bittering. The brewery plans to keep this beer available year round.
Since December, this beer has been brewed exclusively for Mount Hood Meadows Ski Resort. However, due to overwhelming popularity and positive reviews, Everybody’s decided to release this beer for wider distribution, including their pub in White Salmon, WA. “We tried a new blend of hops in this Pale, and the reception has been outstanding. It was an easy decision to make it available to a wider audience”, said owner/brewmaster Doug Ellenberger.
The beer is named Mountain Mama in honor of co-founder of the brewery, Christine Ellenberger, who graduated from West Virginia University, where she was a white water rafting guide and kayaker. A true outdoors-woman, her love of snowboarding and rivers brought her to the Northwest, and also inspired Doug to giver her the nickname Mountain Mama. “She’s the heart and soul behind this brewery, and she deserves a beer named after her. We wanted the tap handle to represent what a strong and amazing woman she is”, said Doug.
Head brewer Adam McClure is extremely proud of this beer as well, noting the strong aroma, and clean finish. “I wanted to give the drinker a big, juicy fruit, citrus aroma, but not blow them away with bitterness. We wanted to make a beer that can be enjoyed by everyone, from craft novice, to the hop heads of the Northwest. We also used some rolled oats in the recipe, which helps give it a nice body. The result is a clean, flavorful American Pale Ale.”
