“Collaboration beers from breweries and restaurants have been making the rounds for years, but ones with a third party that’s a magazine is rare to see. For its latest collaboration beer, Zeeks Pizza brought together both Single Hill Brewing and Sip Magazineto brew the new Lateral A IPA.
This new beer that will be taking a tap handle at each Zeeks Pizza location in the Puget Sound and packaged in 16oz cans features two experimental, Yakima-bred hops and three Northwest grown malts. Lateral A IPA uses 586 and 692 experimental varieties from Yakima’s Hop Breeding Co. and malts from Great Western Malting in Vancouver, Washington and LINC Malt in Spokane.
Taking its name from the infamous road that leads to the heart of the Yakima Valley hop fields, brewer Zach Turner’s creation speaks to the beer’s local roots and Single Hill’s start. Lateral A IPA is a nod to the road that leads to the region’s densest hop fields, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit many of the families that work these farms through La Casa Hogar.”
