Sonoma Pride is being released in effort to raise funds for victims of the catastrophic fire events that have taken place in Sonoma County, California in October of 2017. It is a partnership between Russian River Brewing Company and King Ridge Foundation.
Beavertown wanted to help friends out at Russian River, they thought they woukd use the opportunity to do a Beavertown take on their most famous beer: Pliny the Elder. They brewed the beer to a slightly lower ABV with a touch of malt character, solid bitterness and loaded with classic West Coast hops. This beer will go into a limited amount of kegs and all profits from the sale will go to the fundraiser.

Tasting notes: Pours crystal clear, with a golden colour. Aromas of Mango, Papaya, Hop Oil, Sherbet, Melon, Strawberry, Pine, Citrus, and Stone Fruits. The taste is intensely hoppy with an oily texture from intense hopping from hop leaf, pellets and cryo powder. Finishes bitter with a hint of sweetness from the malt.
