Last year, three Bellingham breweries joined forces to create a special ale for Bellingham Beer Week. The result of this collaborative effort between Kulshan, Chuckanut, and Boundary Bay, a Belgian-style dark ale, was a big hit. Not only was it the first collaboration beer in town - it was also the first canned beer from the three breweries.
Riding on last year's success, Beer Week is back and bigger than ever. This year, nine (count 'em!) Whatcom County breweries have teamed up to create Whatcom Wheat Ale. Canned August 20, 2014 at Boundary Bay Brewery, Whatcom Wheat will be available on draft and in 16-ounce cans throughout the city, just in time for Beer Week.
Check out the photos below for a review of the canning process. Then go out and get some!
