Hopworks Urban Brewery has a new collaboration with Portland Timbers soccer captain Liam Ridgewell called Ridgy’s Royall Boat Beer. On Sunday, August 7th, Hopworks will release this limited summer beer at the pub after the match that afternoon.
Liam Ridgewell’s beer is Hopworks second soccer collaboration. Liam likes day-long sessions on warm summer lakes, so he set the brewery’s course for pale waters. The forecast calls for blasts of tropical hops and citrus zest backed by waves of honey.
In addition to being on tap, HUB will also release a limited run of collector bottles. After the release party, the beer will be on tap at BikeBar. A portion of this beer’s proceeds are donated to The Freshwater Trust, a freshwater conservation nonprofit based in Portland.
