Buoy Beer releases Hoppy Blonde Ale in Cans

Astoria, Oregon-based Buoy Beer Company has a new addition to their rotating can lineup with Hoppy Blonde Ale being released in 6-packs and 12oz cans. Hoppy Blonde Ale is the 2nd of four limited can releases that will make up the rotator series in cans for 2019. Hoppy Blonde is a new style for Buoy Beer, brewed to be a refreshing summer beer.

More from a press release:

“When the discussion started to decide the summer rotating can, the ABV was the first point to be agreed on.” Said Kevin Shaw, Brewmaster. “We wanted something light… a light, crisp drinker for the summer.”

Buoy’s Hoppy Blonde Ale is bright and straightforward with an ABV of 4.8%. A blonde ale with a subtle, yet solid malt bill and a healthy dose of Pacific Northwest Comet, Simcoe, and Meridian hops. Hoppy Blonde is fresh and grassy with notes of citrus and pine, a perfect partner for beach walks, hours of sturgeon fishing, and sunny porch days.

“There’s so many great activities to do in the summer, especially around Astoria.” Said Jessyka Dart-Mclean, Marketing Manager. “Fishing, paddle boarding, hiking, or just chilling at the beach, you definitely need to bring along a few fresh beers on those excursions.”

Hoppy Blonde will be available in 6-packs of 12oz cans distributed in Oregon & SW Washington. Look for the cans everywhere you bought Buoy Helles Lager cans. The rotating 12oz can lineup will continue to change throughout the year.
Astoria, OR overlooks the meeting of one of the West’s most relentless rivers and the wilderness of an entire ocean – and it’s here that Buoy Beer Company brews its beer. With balance always a priority, we focus on traditional lagers and NW ales to savor after a hard day’s work and to share with friends.
