Wingman Brewers celebrates it 6th Anniversary on April 22nd at the brewery's taproom in Tacoma. Along with all the great Wingman beers you'd expect, food will be available from South Sound Cuisine food truck.
For the occasion, Wingman will have a variety of its beers available on tap along with a special Birthday Cake IPA.
About the Birthday Cake IPA
Wingman Brewers describes it this way: "The Birthday Cake IPA idea came from seeing a few other breweries around the country doing similar things. We don't know that we are the first brewery to throw a whole cake into the mash tun... but we might be."
And the cake is in the beer.
"It will be very low in bitterness for an IPA, but will have plenty of citrus and berry hop aromas and flavors. The beer is being brewed with 1 full sprinkle party birthday cake and 3 boxes of cake mix in the mash. The aroma of the mash was great to begin with. Then after boiling we added in a bourbon Madagascar vanilla bean, graham crackers and Citra & Mosaic hops."
"As the beer goes through the fermentation process we will also be adding in more of the same hops and depending on our best judgement we may also add in some blueberry puree. This is a fun beer that we are excited to be making. The ingredients may sound odd and photos may look a bit gimmicky, but the deliciousness of the beer doesn't lie. We hope everyone will come out and try the beer at our Anniversary Party."
