Things continue to be “hop-enning” for Alpine’s Melvin Brewing (yes, we just said “hop-enning”). They launched 4 new beers last weekend. The catch is that these beers are only on tap at Melvin’s new Brewpub in Bellingham, Washington. Considering Jackson is the second home capital of Wyoming (a ton of people have a “second home” in Jackson Hole), you can’t blame Melvin for establishing a second home outside of Wyoming. And Bellingham is a very “hop-enning” town in the Pacific Northwest. It’s on the coast, 50 miles to Mt. Baker, 32 kilometers to the Canadian border, 22 nautical miles to Orcas Island, and 30 minutes drive to Mt. Vernon, where Melvin founder Jeremy Tofte grew up.
Melvin’s New Beers:
- Peach Innit – a white peach pale ale
- A Block Away – Brown ale
- MBR – Melvin’s blue ribbon special
- Melvingham IPA – a very hoppy IPA
Allegedly, Kung Fu is continuous looping on the TV’s at the Brew pub, like it does at Thai Me Up. And to “Hop” it all off, Melvin was awarded the 2017 Breakout Brewery of the year by Brewbound.
