Fish Brewing Co. releases Ingalls Bitter.

The Fish Brewing Company is pleased to announce that it will soon release Leavenworth - Ingall's Extra Special Bitter. This English-style Ale is medium-bodied, with a rich bronze color and truly authentic E.S.B. malt and hop character. The taste is long on malt flavor with hints of sweet caramel and toffee. This delicious ale also displays a wonderful balance between the yeast's natural fruitiness and the hop's fresh herbal quality.

Captain Ingall's is know for having surveyed the Blewett Pass area in the Cascade Mountains. According to legend, he discovered a "Mother Lode" gold vein and marked it for later mining, only to have an earthquake bury it forever. Some say you can still see the Captain wandering up there looking for this gold.

Ingall's Extra Special Bitter is the latest edition of the Leavenworth Beer styles to be brewed at the Fish Brewing Company brewery in downtown Olympia This unfiltered E.S.B. will be available in early January, 2002, and follows on the successful debut of Leavenworth's Snowblind Winter Warmer. Snowblind was the first seasonal Leavenworth Beer style to have been brewed at the new parent company in Olympia.

Scott Hansen, Founder of The Leavenworth Brewery and now President of Fish Brewing Company, says he has recently been very busy in the market, gauging the reaction of Leavenworth Beer aficionados to the new beers coming out of Olympia. When questioned on the transition taking place in Olympia, Mr. Hansen noted that the success of Snowblind Winter Wanner in the market, "clearly shows that the brewing staff in Olympia is up to the challenge of faithfully reproducing the classic Leavenworth flavor profile."

Fish Brewing now brews two distinct product lines. These include the original Fish Tale Organic I.P.A., Fish Tale Organic Amber, and the Organic River Run Rye, in addition to Leavenworth's Hodgson's India Pale Ale, Whistling Pig Hefeweizen and Blind Pig Dunkel Weizen. Fish Brewing Co. has grown considerably over the last several years and with the acquisition of the Leavenworth Beers brand, management is confident of increased market share. Vice-president Martin Bills, believes that the company will ship nearly 8000 barrels in 2002.
