Double Mountain releases Idaho 7 Single Hop IPA

Double Mountain Idaho 7 IPA

Hood River, Oregon’s Double Mountain Brewery has been active during the pandemic, getting involved in benefits for out-of-work service industry members, and cautiously reopening their pub. Double Mountain’s latest is a new entry into their Brewer’s Experimental IPA series, a Idaho 7 Single Hop IPA created by brewmaster/owner Matt Swihart.

More from a press release:

Wonderfully piney and dripping ripe with fruit, Idaho 7 was used in every stage of brewing. Like climate change and social distancing, this IPA is scientifically tasty. Idaho 7 Single Hop IPA is available in refillable 500ml bottles and on draft at our Hood River Taproom, SE Portland Taproom in the Woodstock neighborhood, and at fine establishments throughout the Northwest.

IDAHO 7 IPA 6.9% ABV 69 BU
“I fell in love with this hop a few years back and have been wanting to show off its earthy fruity wonderfulness in a single hop beer. Please enjoy socially! distantly! and give a sh*t about the environment and stop buying cans, seriously. Our bottles are truly better for the planet, make choices that help our world” Matt Swihart, Owner & Brewmaster

With news appearing throughout media outlets on the shortcomings of recycling and OPB reporting that Oregon recycling is on the decline, we determined that there is no better time than the present to share the information on why to choose refillable bottles. Complimenting this delicious experimental series, each beer’s label highlights the benefits of using refillable bottles. The carbon footprint of refillable bottles is vastly lower than other container choices, making it the best container for the environment. Add the benefit of reduced oxidation, and refillable bottles are better for the beer too. Reduce, Reuse, Repeat, a solid mantra, not only for refillable bottles but containers in general.
