Brew It Black

A new collaboration beer took a dark turn… Plus, pop-ups, coloring night and more!

The sun may be returning, but our latest collaboration beer has left us in the dark. Behold: At Dawn, We Ride Black IPA, a collaboration with our fellow Fairbanks brewers at Lat 65 Brewing Company!

Does seeing “black IPA” take you back a decade or so? Us, too. This beer harkens back to both Black Spruce and Lat 65’s head brewers’ origins brewing in Oregon and celebrates a now oft-unseen style. This beer was brewed with a base made up of both Pilsen and Munich malts and a sprinkling of pale chocolate malt. A dank and fruity hop base was built upon a whirlpool addition of Strata hops, and dry-hopping with Australian Eclipse hops added Mandarin orange and pine notes. For some extra flavor and fun, this beer was conditioned on vanilla beans and orange peel. The final product features notes of chocolate-covered oranges, Tootsie Pops and subtle pine, and the can features original artwork by Andrew Brooks.

Take a break from our usual hazy programming with a pint of At Dawn, We Ride Black IPA! This beer is available on tap at our taproom (but not Lat 65’s, sadly) and in 4-packs to go from our website and online store. Cheers to collaboration and revisiting old favorite styles!
