Next Saturday, June 8th, Hellbent Brewing will celebrate their fourth anniversary. For the brewery and the four co-owners, this marks another year of recognition and success in the congested ocean of breweries throughout the city and the region.
Starting at 12 pm and concluding by midnight, Hellbent Brewing Company will convert their private parking lot into a beer garden featuring food trucks, live entertainment, and of course Hellbent beers.
In addition to live music, the brewery is set to release their celebratory beer, Anniversary IPA.
Anniversary IPA (2019) In honor of Hellbents 4th anniversary we have produced an ultra premium IPA to commemorate the event. Using obscene amounts of Amarillo Hops along with a bunch of Simcoe, Citra and Mosaic hops this beer bursts with citrus followed by a pungent pine punch and finishing with mellow tropical hop aromas. This beer is brewed with Pale and Vienna malts accented with Honey malt, and Carapils malts. It is unfiltered for maximum hop flavor. 7% ABV 63 IBU
For those looking for a bite or beat to pair with their beers, here's the breakdown of food and live acts, throughout the day.

2:30 PM - 4:30 PM Always Naked
Rahul Mathew’s heavy and driving drum rhythms blended with Pword Kelly’s grounding bass lines to foster a dense and rich substrate over which Shane Squire’s Hendrix-evoking guitar riffs and Skylar Steffy’s voice (like a rock-inspired reincarnation of the ‘90s Seattle punk icon Mia Zapata) soared. The resulting sound was powerful: solid rock and roll dripping with obvious talent.” -Sophie Aanerud The Daily, University of Washington
Drums: Rahul. Bass: Pword. Guitar: Shane. Vocals: Skylar.
4:30 PM - 6:30 PM Cosmic Serenity.
Based in Hawaii, with roots by way of the swamps of New Orleans, Texas, Colorado & MN, Trill LeBeau of Cosmic Serenity is a conjurer of Musical Alchemy. His sound is where the rhythm and cadence of the Old, triangulate with that of a Star Skipper floating around the cosmos beaming up Fellow Luminous Beings. For your next dosage of Musical Medicine, prepare for Lift off in t-minus Now! Trill is currently on a world tour, also known as.. *The Flowgram* in your area!
Cosmic Serenity toured in Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington, Texas, Colorado, and the Midwest in 2017 in support of their debut EP NEW LEAF.

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Ayron Jones.
With the release and reception of his album Audio Paint Job, Ayron Jones has had a season of fervent media recognition in 2017. This coming after a year of intense creativity and many personal changes for the gifted singer/songwriter/guitarist.
Jones has gotten and given a lot of thrills opening for major acts such as Guns N’ Roses, B.B. King, Run-D.M.C., Public Enemy, Rahkim, Jeff Beck, Robin Trower, Spearhead, and many more; and at festivals like SXSW, Sasquatch, and Bumbershoot. He describes the feeling like no other, being on stage front and center with thousands of people watching. He is elated that his feeling that 2017 will be a bust-out year is coming true. “I’m extremely grateful and anxious to see what’s next.” This is only a testament, which confirms big things are ahead for Ayron Jones.

Hellbent started with three of us – Jack Guinn, Chris Giles and Randy Embernate – longtime friends and restaurant industry veterans. For us, starting Hellbent was the natural (and the coolest) thing to do, growing directly out of our experience and our love of beer. For years we home-brewed and toiled over our business plan. Then, we met Brian Young – award winning brewer, co-owner and fast friend – who turned out to be the missing link. Within a couple months, we were on the hunt for the perfect location.
We wanted our brewery in Lake City, where Chris and Jack already called home, to contribute to the growing beer scene here. When we stepped into the old CM Hopkins building for the first time, we knew we had found our venue. Starting right away, we gutted it and began the transformation, building with reclaimed wood, steel, good humor, and a fair amount of muscle.
Finally, after years of fierce determination and hard work (including seven months of construction), we opened our doors in the thick of microbrew country. We didn’t do this alone. We are humbled by the support and kindness of our friends and family that helped us along the way. So, to our beer-loving brothers and sisters of the Pacific Northwest, cheers and welcome to Hellbent!
