Full Sail Brewmaster Jim Kelter says this new beer, named after the exit near the brewery’s Hood River, Oregon headquarters, is a labor of local love.
“Exit 63 is a celebration of this place we call home,” says Kelter. “From our brewery just off Exit 63 in Hood River, OR, comes this easy drinking Blonde Ale brewed with pale rye malt, Northwest grown barley, and Cascade, Mt. Hood, and Glacier hops.”
Exit 63 is locally sourced in every way. Water from Mt Hood’s glacier- fed springs supplies the liquid for this beer. Barley and hops grown in the Yakima and Willamette valleys supply the remaining crucial ingredients. As should be apparent, when you drink Exit 63, you are drinking a slice of the Pacific Northwest.
Full Sail Exit 63 is part of the brewery’s year- round rotation and is sold in 6- pack and 12- pack cans, and on draft. The easy going and highly quaffable blonde ale contains 5 percent alcohol by volume and 16 IBU of bitterness. Track some down where you find your other Full Sail favorites, and have some fun with your newly made and now favorite blonde friend, Exit 63.
