NW Peaks Base Camp is now closed; however the Bergschrund (located half a block South) is handling all retail operations, including pouring 12 NW Peaks brewery’s beers and assuming control of mountainBeer subscriptions. Please head on in to get a sampler tray, pint, or a NW Peaks growler fill.

Tuesdays throughout May: TAP NW Peaks supports Obliteride.
The name. The mountain. Ingalls is situated at the end of the Teanaway river road rising out of headlight basin just south of Mt. Stuart. It’s officially a trio of peaks cleverly named as East, South, and North Ingalls. Each peak offers a different degree of difficulty with the S peak being a scramble and the N and E requiring some easy-moderate rock climbing. As such, it is a great location for everyone, with headlight basin being a gorgeous day hike / camping excursion in the shadow of Ingalls and Mt Stuart, and the rest of the Stuart Range farther north. Ingalls offers some fun exploring opportunities from casual wandering to technical rock.
The Beer. A true sign that the seasons are changing, Ingalls Ginger is back! Ingalls features ginger flavor and aroma on top of a backbone that is best described as a pale. The just-above-subtle ginger flavor is backed by a light hop bitterness (with the ginger contributing a little as well), with some residual sweetness and mouth feel from the large portion of wheat used in the grain bill. A late portion of cascade hops complement the ginger aroma with a nice citrus counterpart. A great refreshing beer that will surely be a hit for the ginger lovers and even for (most of the) ginger doubters.
May Tuesday Appreciation Pints benefits: Obliteride.
Money raised through the Tuesday Appreciation Pints program will go to Obliteride. This month’s TAP was organized with the help of Obliteride team “Team Frei”. You can support Team Frei’s fundraising effort by clicking here.
Obliteride gave us an overview of what they do:
Obliteride is a part of Seattle’s Fred Hutch. Fred Hutch’s mission is to eliminate cancer and related diseases as causes of human suffering and death. It is one of the premier cancer research institutions in the world. Obliteride is also an annual cycling event that raises money for Fred Hutch – 100% of all donations going to cancer research.
When asked how the general public can contribute to what they are doing:
You can access the Obliteride website here, sign up to participate or volunteer in the Obliteride cycling event, or donate to an existing Obliteride team.
